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...

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.

A deeply emotive wine which encapsulates the wild power of Maremma alongside the supple energy, savoury red cherry and balsamic perfume of Sangiovese. A small portion of Cabernet Sauvignon adds weight and depth to the mid palate.

Straw yellow and golden in colour, this is a blend of Traminer, Sauvignon and Semillon. A wine that is very close to Elisabetta's heart; it was her dream to create a great late harvest wine in Maremma. The result is a wine that reflects her spirit and energy. Candied stone and tropical fruit initially dominate the palate and develop into...

TASTING NOTES

This is the wine that began it all for Le Pupille and as an example of what Sangiovese can do in this part of the Maremma, look no further. This wine shows class and composure, combining both sweet fruit and savoury elements with background spice and pepper. Tannins are supporting yet succulent and in the glass it just gets better...

TASTING NOTES

Wonderfully juicy red fruit over a black fruit core with savoury hints of undergrowth and spice. Very pretty, floral and lively with fresh, crisp acidity brightening the velvet texture and richness. A perfectly composed and totally delicious Morellino.
