Review

Fattoria Le Pupille is one of the most traditional wineries in new Tuscany and has been offering for more than thirty years some of the region's most highly regarded and award-winning wines. The winery runs the vineyard according to organic principles, based on total respect for the environment and with a clever balance between tradition and innovation. Orientated in particular towards experimenting with international varieties which today now form part of the Maremma landscape, Le Pupille is also one of the prime movers of the Morellino di Scansano, a wine produced in the Scansano area with a minimum 85% of the Sangiovese variety.

The little Sangiovese becomes mighty in the hands of this outstanding winery, on whose clay and ferrous lands, located in the gentle Grosseto valleys in the south of Tuscany, it attains high quality standards.

Morellino Riserva represents the pinnacle of this experimental work which seeks to harmonise as much as possible the vineyards with their land of origin. A wine that's an elegant and attractive ruby colour with garnet glints, which exhibits on the nose intense notes of cherry, typical of the Sangiovese variety, and other balsamic, spicy, mineral and undergrowth hints. On the palate, the refined tannins, reinforced by a small addition of Cabernet Sauvignon, achieve a harmonious balance between smoothness, delicacy and persistence. A great Morellino that has benefitted too from a wise ageing from which a special profundity and longevity ensue.

Réussite

Le Cabernet marque ce vin positivement tout en conservant son identité. Pas mal d’astringence, il demande à s'épanouir quelques temps mais peu être bu dès à présent ...un excellent rapport qualité - prix.

Fattoria Le Pupille

The Signora del Morellino is the Ambassador for Maremma. This is how Elisabetta Geppetti has been defined, and the definition immediately fit like a glove for this producer who, with Fattoria Le Pupille, has made history for this land and its most traditional and innovative name. Elisabetta’s rigour and passion are used to make wines from this honest and wild territory that each year are authentic paradigms of elegance and excellence of contemporary Tuscan enology. The gen...
