Fattoria le Pupille, Saffredi 2013

RRP £100 (magnum)

My favourite post-2010 vintage. A cooler than average summer has resulted in an impeccably balanced, vibrant expression of Saffredi, with notes of leather, sour cherry and wild mushrooms on the palate. Exceptional length and complexity, with suggestions of more to come.
