Lot #792. Fattoria Le Pupille Saffredi 1990

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 94 RP.
"The spectacular 1990 Saffredi (a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, and Alicante) is a limited production gem. Only 200 cases are available, so don't expect to easily find it. The wine boasts an opaque ruby/purple color, a huge, fabulously-scented, penetrating bouquet of black and red fruits, smoky new oak, flowers, and spices. The wine is super-concentrated, with great purity and ripeness of fruit, high glycerin, a voluptuous texture, and a long, rich, concentrated finish. It is a beautifully balanced, powerful yet elegant wine that can be drunk now or cellared . . ." Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate #97, Feb 1995
Provenance: The Multitude Cellar
Notes: Heavily torn label, faded label, wrinkled capsule.
