About

99

"Incredible aromas of dark berries, lavender, rosemary, licorice and dried flowers. Spice. Full body and fantastic tannin texture with great length. Goes on for minutes. Muscular yet wonderfully formed and refined. A glorious Saffredi. Drink in 2022."

98 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2016 Saffredi brings full-throttled intensity in a very well-balanced wine. The blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (30%) and Petit Verdot (10%) spends 18 months in mostly new oak. This vintage is compact, firm and precise, with lovely floral aromas on the bouquet in front of blackberry and plum. Long oak toasting gives the wine tasty notes of spice and cinnamon and rounds the bouquet off nicely. The mouthfeel is soft and velvety. This is a complex, integrated and absolutely beautiful wine."

Product Description:

"Intense color. The deep concentration of red fruits where the currant predominates evolves into spicy, fresh and balsamic notes. In the mouth, the rich and round body opens up with dense tannins, characterised by a great evolutionary harmony. Fresh, intense and balsamic, its long persistence is leaded by its prominent acidity." - Winery
