There's a lot to say, and admire, about the 2013 Saffredi. First off all, this is the first growing cycle made under the careful watch of enologist Luca D'Attoma. This makes all the difference. One of his changes is an increased focus on Petit Verdot, which makes up to 15% of the blend in this case. The other grapes used are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. But the increased role of Petit Verdot has awarded this vintage with stunning precision, linearity and balance. It's like a light switch has suddenly been turned on. Petit Verdot on the Tuscan Coast tends to show softer and fuller lines. In this wine, you taste the tonic crunchiness of the grape skins instead. The dark concentration of the wine is pleasurable and rich, and there's a final acidic signature that closes the deal in style. Congratulations. Monica Larner - The Wine Advocate

This is another great Saffredi following the perfect 100-point 2012. I tasted it a year ago and thought it was sensational. Even better now. It's so dense and structured yet shows a lively, jazz-like vibe that gives it form and beauty. Needs at least four to five years to soften. Powerful and muscular. Cabernet sauvignon, merlot and petit verdot. James Suckling

The 2013 Saffredi is every bit as special from bottle as it was when I first tasted it in barrel. Wonderfully fresh, vibrant and nuanced, the 2013 possesses striking depth to match its explosive personality. A rush of blue and purplish-hued fruits, licorice, spice and new leather built into the powerful, deeply layered finish. The 2013 is a superb edition of the flagship Saffredi. It's as simple as that. -  Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

After a slow start, a good growing season produced a lateish crop in excellent condition. The blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. It has beautifully lifted and fragrant aromas of violets, spice and luminous black cherry. The palate is dark, sultry, slightly brooding and Cabernet-focused, with deep, dark fruit, luxuriously silky tannins and effortless freshness. A long future is assured.-Joanna Simon, Decanter

Cassis confit, blueberry compote, dark chocolate, undergrowth, silky on the palate, punchy with light (extracted) sweetness and insistent chalky minerality. Alcohol and creaminess are accurately filled with extract, great length. Highly sophisticated and yet very catchy, really has nobility - but in a decidedly soft, plump format.-Falstaff

Very succulent with juicy fruit and a racy top note. Great for current drinking! Not heavy or concentrated, just perfect for now. Long and beautifully balanced. -Jancis Robinson
