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

This could be the greatest Saffredi ever, with blueberry, licorice, minerals and flowers. Rosemary, too. Full body with incredibly integrated tannins and long finish. This is a triumph. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot.

A reat expression of a ripe Sangiovese grape with scents of marasca cherry and aromatic hints that recalls the Mediterranean brushwood. Elegant and silky, medium to full body. Fresh but fully ready, with lovely ripe tannins.

TASTING NOTES

The 2016 Syrah is a dense, potent wine. Wild cherry, game, dried herbs, menthol, licorice and coffee are front and center. This is an especially rich style. Then, again we are in Maremma. The 2016 is a bit wild, but in the best sense of the term. It will offer its finest drinking alongside similarly hearty cuisine.95 points, Antonio Galloni,...
