Elisabetta Geppetti, the powerhouse behind Fattoria Le Pupille, is a woman of exceptional energy and vision. She was only 20 years old when she first took the reins at her family’s property in Scansano. The original wine made here was Morellino di Scansano which, to this day, remains the mainstay of production. With her steadfast vision, Elisabetta enlarged the estate to the current 75 hectares and added to the range Maremma’s first Super Tuscan, the Cabernet-based Saffredi. Thanks to Elisabetta’s incredible work over the last thirty years, Maremma is now firmly on the map of wine lovers.

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.
