100 points Luca Gardini: "Thanks to the wise intuition of Elisabetta Geppetti and her son Ettore Rizzi, Fattoria Le Pupille’s Saffredi found its place among the prestigious elite of the great international red wines. For this family, making wine is not only a job but a real vocation and a lifestyle choice. The emblem of the estate, blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot, from the vineyard of the same name located 250 meters above sea level. Red impenetrable colour, with violet reflections. The nose releases aromas of wild fruits, such as blueberries and blackberries, hints of bitter cocoa, touches of laurel and Mediterranean scrub. The palate is taut and dense, with brackish tannins and fruity-officinal return on the finish. Of great persistence. (Oct 2022)"
98 points James Suckling: "Impressive aromas of fresh herbs from the Tuscan coast, such as sage, mint, rosemary and thyme. Blackcurrants, too. Full-bodied with fine, chewy tannins that show beautiful length and consistency. Racy and beautiful, with lots of subtle and refined character. Slightly more cabernet sauvignon this year, which adds class to the wine. 80% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot and 10% petit verdot. Give this about three or four years of bottle age. Try after 2027. (8/5/22)"
