Saffredi Le Pupille 2017 (18L)
95+ Points, Zachys Buying Team: "The 2017 Saffredi once more delivers on the elegance, complexity, and balance that we have come to expect from this great wine. The team at Le Pupille did a masterful job in picking grapes early in a warm vintage and were rewarded with bright acidity to complement dark, ripe fruits and soft tannins. This will truly be hard to resist right out of the gate, yet, will improve with 3-5 more years in the bottle."
97 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Wow, there is a very impressive freshness here that defies the heat of this vintage. The 2017 Saffredi does not seem like a 2017 at all. Now celebrating its 30th birthday, Saffredi is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. Thanks to the vineyard's proximity to the sea, leaving leaves on the vines and the sharp diurnal shifts of the area, the fruit was able to ripen in a balanced manner despite the hot and dry summer. The team at Fattoria le Pupille knew they would have to be ready to harvest early and lose some their yields, and they did. In the end, production was down 25%, but the result is a fresh, thick and beautiful red made with ripe fruit and dark concentration. This is a great effort from Fattoria le Pupille. This wine will be released in November."
97 Points, James Suckling: "Gorgeous blackberries, dark chocolate, spice and lightly roasted coffee. Full body. Layered and creamy. Lovely, silky tannins that melt into the wine. A beautiful red from the vintage with class and finesse to the depth of fruit. Drink or hold."
