Description

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.

Producer Information: Fattoria 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 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.
