2014 Vintage

James Suckling - 96 Points

Sexy blueberry, spice and black pepper. Mushroom. Full body and ultra-fine tannins. Extremely long and just starting to come around now. Needs a little more time in bottle. Splendid finish. Try in 2019 but already amazing.

 

Notes on the Producer

Winery Overview Fattoria Le Pupille, located in the Tuscany region of Italy, is a small estate owned by Elisabetta Geppetti. In the 1990s, Fattoria Le Pupille established a presence in the international wine market. Critics have rewarded its quality and consistency throughout its range of wines. Of particular note has been its Saffredi, which is found on the wine lists of the world’s best restaurants. Location of Vineyard In the 1970s, Fattoria Le Pupille was a farmhouse near Pereta with just five acres of Sangiovese vines. Even on this small tract of land, a good red wine was being produced and bottled, albeit in limited quantities. In 1978, the Morellino di Scansano DOC was created; that same year marked the first harvest of the new DOC wine at Le Pupille. Eventually the space in Pereta became too restrictive and Le Pupille moved to its current headquarters, where the estate now comprises 175 acres. Winemaking Philosophy As a young owner, Elisabetta Geppetti decided to become personally responsible for her small vineyard with one clear goal: to make great wines. The first harvests under the supervision of Giacomo Tachis began in 1982-83. The first vintage of Fattoria Le Pupille Morellino di Scansano, under Elisabetta, was carried out in 1985.
