Tasting Notes

Saffredi is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot; a noble Tuscan wine with French roots. The wine spends 18 months in barrel, of which 75% is new. Saffredi 2012 displays a vast array of flavours; blackberry, blueberry, licorice, smoke and floral aromatics with a touch of granite and leather all combine to provide depth and complexity. In an expressive vintage such as 2012, the wine is all about texture, personality and pure fruit concentration matched with a resonating finish and enough acidity and minerality to give balance.

Reviews & Scores
