Saffredi la Pupille 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2007 Saffredi is drop-dead gorgeous. Roasted coffee beans, grilled herbs, mocha and dark fruit emerge from this beautiful, textured wine. The richness of the fruit radiates through to the long, polished finish. The 2007 Saffredi impresses for its fabulous balance and soft, enveloping personality. It is another superb effort from proprietor Elisabetta Geppetti. Saffredi is Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Alicante. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027...95" WA 10/10 Elisabetta Geppetti is doing just about everything right at Le Pupille. A massive tasting of 30 wines going back to 1987 found a number of older vintages in great shape and a signficiant rise in quality starting around 2000 that continues to the present. I will report on that tasting on www.erobertparker.com. In the meantime, readers will find much pleasure in these new releases. The only wine I didn't care for was the entry-level red Pelofino, which in 2008 and 2009 doesn't approach the level of quality readers have come to expect from Le Pupille.
