"The Fattoria le Pupille 2018 Poggio Valente is an elegant expression of Sangiovese with just a hint of the freewheeling wildness that characterizes the Maremma region of southern Tuscany. The wine delivers cherry, wild rose, forest fruit and blueberry. Beyond those primary tones are integrated notes of spice and mild tobacco. The wine is put together with careful precision, and all it needs now is more aging time in order to flesh out and build depth. Everything is set, just give it time."
94 points, Monica Larner, the Wine Advocate

"The 2018 Poggio Valente is a very pretty, open-knit wine. The aromatics are especially inviting. Sweet pipe tobacco, dried cherry, mint, anise, cinnamon and dried flowers lend notable presence to this decidedly mid-weight Poggio Valente. All the elements are so well balanced."
92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"This is a terrific set of new releases from Le Pupille and proprietor Elisa Geppetti. The flagship Saffredi is fabulous in 2019, but all of these wines merit serious attention. The move towards greater freshness and energy here over the last few years has paid off big time."
Antonio Galloni, Vinous

ProducerFattoria Le Pupille

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 Southern Tuscany in the 1980s. The winery is synonymous with Morellino di Scansano and Elisabetta has been instrumental in placing this appellation on the map of wine lovers, producing excellent value Sangiovese and gaining global fame with the area’s first Super-Tuscan, Saffredi. Her children Clara and Ettore are now instrumental in the winery, and together are working to look toards the future. This second generation has created two incredible, innovative wines: Le Pupille, an amphora-aged Syrah, and Piemme, a phenomenal and unique Petit Manseng.
