GRAPES: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot.
Saffredi is Fattoria Le Pupille’s flagship wine and with 2017 vintage, we celebrate not its 30° anniversary only, but as well winery’s consolidated experience and history as a top player within qualitative Italian wine making. This wine is the outcome of Elisabetta’s intuition and aspiration to make a great wine in Maremma, a wish realized with Giacomo Tachis’s precious help. Saffredi is a special dedication to Fredi, the one who inspired Elisabetta’s passion for wine.
PROFILE: deep ruby colour with purple reflections. It shows pronounced flavours of black fruits like blackcurrant and black cherry along with spicy aromas of cloves, cinnamon and licorice. The palate has a generous velvety texture with round tannins and a return of the fruit for a long and persistent finish.
PAIRING: excellent as a meditation wine or paired with braised quail and cranberries or cocoa beef fillet with orange sauce.
