#9 James Sucklings Top 100 Wines of 2017

I love the currant and rosemary character of this wine. Some sage, too. Complex aromas that draw you in. Full body, extremely tight and chewy with a long and intense finish. The tannins are fantastic – so polished. Focused and beautiful. Mineral undertone with ash and hot stone highlighting the dark fruits. It goes on for minutes. Needs three or four years to come together. But a serious red all the way. - James Suckling

The 2015 Saffredi is a total head-turner. Bold and explosive, the 2015 captures all the magic that Le Pupille is capable of. Crème de cassis, lavender, mint, licorice and truffle are some of the notes that give the 2015 is decidedly exotic, racy personality. Even with all of its abundant richness, the 2015 possesses terrific supporting structure and phenomenal balance. In a word: magnificent! I can't wait to see how the 2015 ages. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

The 2015 Saffredi is a sultry and velvety wine from the Tuscan Coast. The blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot that sees 18 months in new and neutral oak. The textural richness is of the highest caliber, and the bouquet produces a long succession of black fruit, exotic spice and savory tobacco flavors. There’s a touch of mocha chocolate and toasted espresso bean as well. The wine delivers great length and power. It promises not only to age but to improve as it spends more years in the cellar. - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

The spring and summer were worryingly dry, but some rain in August was timely, helping the grapes to ripen fully. The nose is gorgeous, with a lush oakiness and some welcome red fruits. The attack is rich and ripe, marrying immense concentration with good acidity. Despite ageing in 80% new barriques, the oak is not too evident. It's a bit monolithic now but also stylish and persistent, lifted and intense. Long, with great ageing potential. Decanter Magazine
