FATTORIA LE PUPILLE

Elisabetta Geppetti is a woman of exceptional energy, determination and vision.

She was only 20 years old when, in 1985 she first took the reins at her family’s tiny 2 hectare property near Pereta in the Scansano zone.

It was a time when Tuscan wines were at a low ebb, those of Scansano almost non-existent – and women winemakers were practically unheard of. As a student, Elisabetta believed that this unique region held the key to producing wines with fabulous potential. Her understanding of the land and her love of wine combined with her skill and tenacity are responsible for...

TASTING NOTES

Just shy of pale ruby with orange tinges. Open-knit strawberry and cherry nose, and really captivating. Truly integrated oak and notes of tobacco underneath, indicating that the wine is developing quickly. Fine yet solid tannins. Elegance and structure, while medium-term ageing is certainly possible.

TASTING NOTES

Few vintages have expressed all the virtues of the Tuscan coast’s climate as eloquently as 2016. An almost perfect combination of sunshine, warm summer days and cool nights, with just about enough rain to slow down the vine’s growth without making them suffer from drought have led to one of the purest expressions of Le Volte dell’Ornellaia, combining perfectly ripe...

Le Pupille, a winery that has become a synonym for quality and a pioneer of excellence.

The original wine made here was Morellino di Scansano which, to this day, remains the mainstay of production. With her steadfast vision, Elisabetta added an international aspect to the estate which manifested itself in the Maremma’s first Super Tuscan, the Cabernet-based Saffredi which was first released in 1989.

Other innovations followed soon after, though Elisabetta was careful to keep her international varieties separate from her Sangiovese based wines. The most important addition to the range following Saffredi was the singlevineyard Poggio Valente.

Elisabetta is truly an undisputed star of the Italian wine scene having spent 3 decades tirelessly promoting her beloved Morellino di Scansano region and outstanding estate, whilst also finding the time to raise 5 children. A power house of talent and one of Tuscany’s wine royalty, one cannot fail to be enchanted by her superb wines.
