Fattoria Le Pupille Saffredi 2016

Saffredi is Fattoria Le Pupille’s flagship wine and is the outcome of Elisabetta Geppetti's intuition and aspiration to make a great wine in Maremma, a wish that was realised with the precious help of the legendary Giacomo Tachis. Saffredi is a special dedication to Fredi, the one who inspired Elisabetta's passion for wine. First produced in 1987 Saffredi is a red wine blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (35%) and Petit Verdot (5%), matured in oak for 18 months (80% new) prior to release. Deep ruby red in colour the wine shows pronounced aromas of black fruits like blackcurrant and black cherry along with spicy notes of cloves, cinnamon and liquorice. The palate has a generous velvety texture with round tannins and a return of the fruit for a long and persistent finish. Perfect paired with braised quail and cranberries or cocoa beef fillet with orange sauce.
