92 Pts Antonio Galloni - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"I had high hopes for Geppetti's 2002 Saffredi after being bowled over by the 2002 Poggio Valente. I was not disappointed. The 2002 is a gorgeous, powerful wine laced with dark red fruit, sweet herbs, spices, white truffles and worn-in leather. The 2002 shows marvelous intensity in the lithe, focused style of the year. Notes of mint and crushed flowers add the final layers of complexity. I am not sure the 2002 Saffredi will be as long-lived as the Poggio Valente, but it remains one of the handful of successes in this challenging vintage. The 2002 really blossoms in the glass, so readers should give the wine plenty of air. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018. (Reviewed May 2011)"

"Wild thing. Very ripe red with plum, prune and berry character on the nose. Full-bodied, with lots of sunshine on the palate. Bright and fruity. A new style for Saffredi. Best after 2005. 1,600 cases made. -JS" (Reviewed October 2004)

"A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and alicante, this dark and savory wine is remarkably concentrated for an '02. Its gentle, rich cherry flavor shows finesse against the rougher smoke of the tannins. For braised lamb chops." (Reviewed April 2006)
"Lively, very bright healthy crimson. Very evolved nose - pretty bloody and tannins practically 'melted' - clearly a very distinctive vintage. Chunky and solid, for relatively early drinking. Alcohol on the finish is marked. (JR)" (Reviewed October 2007). 16.5 out of 20 points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages
"IGT Maremma Toscana Saffredi was first created in 1987 but the vineyard, in the area around Magliano, was planted seven years earlier by Elisabetta's mentor, Fredi, to whom this Cru is dedicated. Saffredi was ready for the market in 1990 and within a very few years became the success that it still remains as one of the most important red wines within the panorama of the Italian wine world." -Winery
"Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled (max. 32 degrees C) in stainless steel vats. Malolactic fermentation follows the alcoholic fermentation. The wine subsequently rests for 18 months in 75% new and 25% second usage barriques. It is bottled after a light clarifying 24 months after the harvest and is put on the market 3 autumns later." -Winery
