Fattoria Le Pupille Saffredi 2019 Maremma Toscana


In stock

SKU: 30593 Categories: ,


Saffredi was the first Super-Tuscan to be produced in the south of the region, guided at its inception by the architect of the movement, the great Dr. Giacomo Tachis. Produced from a single vineyard, the wine is driven by Cabernet Sauvignon, supported by Merlot and a dash of Petit Verdot. Hand-picked and macerated for 25 days before maturing for 18 months in French oak barriques, 20% new, Saffredi is consistently superb. Despite its comparably low price tag, critics repeatedly place Saffredi among the highest echelons of Italian wines, and 2019 is no different – Larner gives the 2019 97+/100 while James Suckling reaches 99/100 Points, both the second highest ever score for this wine.

Producer Information: Fattoria Le Pupille

Elisabetta Geppetti, the powerhouse behind Fattoria Le Pupille, is a woman of exceptional energy and vision. She was only 20 years old when she first took the reins at her family’s property in Scansano. The original wine made here was Morellino di Scansano which, to this day, remains the mainstay of production. With her steadfast vision, Elisabetta enlarged the estate to the current 75 hectares and added to the range Maremma’s first Super Tuscan, the Cabernet-based Saffredi. Thanks to Elisabetta’s incredible work over the last thirty years, Maremma is now firmly on the map of wine lovers.
