This is the flagship of Fattoria Le Pupille called Saffredi. The vineyard for this top wine grows 250 meters above sea level and is very small, 5 Hectares. After the manual harvest, the wine matures for 18 months in oak wooden barrels of which 75% is new barrel. This gives him a lot of tannins and a delicious structure, what a beast of a wine! In the scent ripe black fruit such as blackberries and berries supplemented with herbs, vanilla, oak wood and plums. In taste this Fattoria Le Pupille Saffredi is very complex with many notes of black fruit, cinnamon, vanilla, cedar wood and much more! ream and cherries in the nose. In the mouth a lot of black fruit, jam and a hint of coffee and tobacco. Remains long with a spicy-smoky touch. The discovery goes on with this wine! This is an amazing wine and 2017 has received no less than 97/100 Parker points.
