    96 Love the aromas of blackberries, licorice and lightly toasted oak. Full bodied, with velvety tannins and a rich finish. Ripe tannins with a beautiful polished. Vanilla. Will come together with bottle age. Very serious as always. Such class and complexity. Best after 2014.

    94 Vintner Elisabetta Geppetti's Saffredi is part cult wine and part mainstream blockbuster in that the wine enjoys worldwide fame, but few know it well. This vintage is soft and luscious, with loads of dark chocolate, cherry, blackberry, tobacco and spice. It's gorgeous down to the last delicious drop.

    91 The 2008 Saffredi, on the other hand, is a bit mystifying. It comes across as quite understated and lacking the necessary mid-palate juiciness to balance the 75% new oak barrels. Dark red fruit, spices and flowers emerge over time, but the wine’s customary explosive, exuberant personality are nowhere to be found. Ultimately, the 2008 is well-made but lacks excitement. The 2008 Saffredi is 49% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Syrah. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2023.

    90 Fresh and lively, if on the grapey, jammy side. Blackberry, black currant and tea flavors are focused by the structure, but not dominated. Vanilla lingers on the finish. For fans of the modern style. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Alicante. Best from 2012 through 2020. 2,165 cases made.
