Description

Fattoria Le Pupille Morellino di Scansano 2020

It was in the mid-1980s that Elisabetta Geppetti, only 20 years old at the time, 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, her family’s Saffredi, a label that has recently celebrated three decades of top scores and reviews. Located inland from but in view of the coast, the vineyards at Fattoria le Pupille lie at roughly 300 meters a.s.l. where they benefit from a natural day-night (diurnal) temperature shifts. The estate covers more than 400 hectares, with 75 hectares planted to vine. Although the winery is not certified, farming practices are entirely organic. Elisabetta still farms the winery’s original 25 “historic” hectares where her world-renowned Saffredi is grown. In recent years, Elisabetta’s daughter Clara has also joined the winery team. Representing the second generation of women to manage one of Italy’s most famous wineries, she played a key role, together with Luca, in developing the winery’s newly released 100 percent Syrah, aged in amphora and named simply “Le Pupille.”

If you are looking for a nice Italian “table wine” for dinner, this Sangiovese will make the meal complete. A nice Tuscan wine that is simple but satisfying. Rounded with smooth tannins. Just say “per favore”.

Winemaker

Made with 90% Sangiovese and 10% Ciliegiolo, this opens with aromas of red-skinned berry, underbrush and baking spice. The bright palate offers dried red cherry, star anise and white pepper alongside velvety tannins. Drink through 2025.

Tasting

A nice red wine. Raspberry predominates, but is not too sweet. Medium body, long finish. Paired well with homemade Sicilian-style.
