Fattoria Le Pupille is a family-owned estate currently managed by Elisabetta Geppetti and her daughter, Clara Gentili. The first woman in her family to run this iconic winery, Elisabetta has carried on the traditions of her forebears while at the same time breaking new ground; she was instrumental in the establishment of Morellino di Scansano as a DOCG, putting this production zone on the world wine map alongside its more well-known Tuscan neighbors.
Elisabetta Geppetti was only 20 years old at the time, and inherited Fattoria Le Pupille from her father-in-law, who wasn’t interested in winemaking. Today, 30 years later, she is widely considered the woman who put Morellino di Scansano on the map of the world’s greatest appellations. She is also credited with giving the world a benchmark Super Tuscan, named "Saffredi", a label that has recently celebrated three decades of top scores and reviews.
Located in the Maremma region on the southern tip of Tuscany and on the Tyrrhenian Sea, Fattoria Le Pupille benefits from volcanic soil and hot, dry daytime weather balanced out by sea breezes that elicit significant swings in day-to-night temperatures. This variation enables grapes to develop an ideal balance between ripe fruit characters and acidity. And that volcanic soil? It makes its mark, providing the ideal complementary flavors to the finished wines.
Fattoria Le Pupille is known for its Sangiovese-based Super Tuscans as well as those from the DOCG Morellino di Scansano DOCG.This "Poggio Valente" Super Tuscan is 100% Sangiovese grown in extremely hilly terrain then aged in 600 liter tonneaux.
94 points Wine Advocate
"Fattoria le Pupille 2018 Poggio Valente is an elegant expression of Sangiovese with just a hint of the freewheeling wildness that characterizes the Maremma region of southern Tuscany. The wine delivers cherry, wild rose, forest fruit and blueberry. Beyond those primary tones are integrated notes of spice and mild tobacco. The wine is put together with careful precision, and all it needs now is more aging time in order to flesh out and build depth." -Monica Larner
