This is the showpiece 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 Super Tuscan matures for 18 months in oak barrels, 75% of which are new barrels. This gives it a lot of tannins and structure, what a beast of a wine! In the scent ripe black fruit such as blackberries and currants supplemented with herbs, vanilla, oak wood and plums. The taste of this Fattoria Le Pupille Saffredi is very complex with many notes of black fruit, cinnamon, vanilla, cedar wood and much more! clearing and cherries in the nose. In the mouth lots of black fruit, jam and a hint of coffee and tobacco. Long lingering with a spicy-smoky touch. The discovery continues with this wine! This is an amazing wine and 2018 has received no less than 96/100 Parker points and 97/100 points from Suckling. Antonio Galloni from Vinous (97+/100) writes in his review of the 2018: " It may very well be the most refined Saffredi I have ever tasted "
