Fattoria Le Pupille’s Saffredi is widely considered to be one of the original Super Tuscans, a wine that helped to put Tuscany on the map of the world’s fine wines in the late 1980s and has been named “Best Maremma Toscana Wine” 

Made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot vines planted in 1980, this elegant bottling by Elisabetta Geppetti, a visionary of Tuscan winemaking, is now considered a classic and a benchmark of Italian viticulture.

Fattoria le Pupille’s estate is located inland from but in view of the coast, and it lies at roughly 300 meters a.s.l., covering more than 400 hectares. Although the winery is not certified, farming practices are entirely organic. To learn more about this incredible and woman-lead winery check out their dedicated page Fattoria le Pupille.

Robert Parker 97+ Points "This blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot is explosive. The percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon has been slightly increased in this vintage (and we can expect the same in the warm 2020 vintage that saw the percentage of Merlot further reduced). This 2019 expression boasts a very compact and powerful quality of fruit with deep intensity, thick layering and a velvety texture. This is a real beauty that should be put aside for a few more years of aging."

So much crushed stone, rosemary, lavender, mint and blackberry. Full-bodied and very structured with layers of powerful and polished tannins. It goes on for minutes. Ink, blackcurrants and blueberries.
