Grape: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot
Tasting Notes: Blackberries, Chocolate, Coffee, Licorice
Saffredi consistently ranks among the highest-rated wines of the vintage year in, and year out.
This Super Tuscan is celebrating its 30th birthday. 2017 was a hot year but the folks at Le Pupille were ready. They harvested early and lost some of their yields, but the result is a fresh, thick and beautiful red. Balanced and quite harmonious at this young stage. Finely structured with perfectly integrated acidity and lots of lovely, silky tannins. This is a great effort from Fattoria le Pupille.
The juicy palate features flavors of blackberries, cassis, dark chocolate, spice, lightly roasted coffee, licorice, oak, vanilla, and leather. The 2017 is amazing to drink now but can age for many years. Pair with beef tenderloin.
