Geppetti has produced another gem in her 2006 Saffredi a French-oak aged blend of Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot and Alicante. This textured explosive wine boasts considerable depth and richness in its dark fruit flowers minerals and graphite. The wine remains extremely primary and in need of considerable bottle age in order to offer its best drinking but it is unquestionably formidable. The style combines elements of power and elegance achieving a level rarely seen in these parts. Simply put this is stunning juice. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026. This is another strong set of wines from proprietor Elisabetta Geppetti capped off by a marvelous 2006 Saffredi. -Antonio Galloni

In fact at times it resembles a barrel sample, given its superb vibrancy and freshness! Dark wild cherries, herbs, graphite, spices, tobacco and leather come together beautifully in this focused, powerful Saffredi. Today the 2006 is decidedly virile and youthful, but there is no doubt it has the sheer depth of material to drink beautifully to age 20, and likely beyond. The 2006 is a marvelous Saffredi, but patience is required.

I love the nose of flowers, dark fruits and Tuscan rosemary. Full-bodied, with super silky tannins and beautiful, refined fruit. Sexy and complex.
