The best ever vintage of Poggio Valente, a 100% Sangiovese Super-Tuscan from Fattoria Le Pupille. Monica Larner of the Wine Advocate gave this vintage her highest-ever score, while Suckling described it as “fascinating” and Antonio Galloni saw its potential for cellaring, saying “I can’t wait to see how it ages”. We can confirm that it is striding beautifully into its drinking window and is a must-buy for all Sangiovese lovers.
Poggio Valente is the younger brother of Saffredi, made in the Maremma, Southern Tuscany. A single-vineyard situated near Scansano, the Sangiovese vines here are all fifty years old, providing immense concentration and intensity. They sit around 300m above sea level, the altitude and sea breezes providing a moderating influence, creating a supremely elegant and supple Sangiovese.
