Maremma Toscana Rosso IGT Saffredi, Fattoria Le Pupille 2006

A blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with a small portion of Alicante aged in 75% new French oak for 18 months and in bottle for about over two years before release. A tour de force from the Maremma! The quality is awesome, putting this Saffredi on the same level as a top-growth Bordeaux from a great vintage.

"Geppetti has produced another gem in her 2006 Saffredi, a French-oak aged blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Alicante. This textured, explosive wine boasts considerable depth and richness in its dark fruit, flowers, minerals and graphite. The wine remains extremely primary and in need of considerable bottle age in order to offer its best drinking but it is unquestionably formidable. The style combines elements of power and elegance, achieving a level rarely seen in these parts. Simply put, this is stunning juice. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026." 96/100 Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Displays a lovely nose of flowers, dark fruits and Tuscan rosemary. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and gorgeous, refined fruit. Complex and seductive. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Alicante and Syrah. Best after 2013. 1,900 cases made." 94/100 James Suckling, Wine Spectator
