The first vintage bottled of this rich and mineral white was in 1997. A Cuvee of Sauvignon Blanc, Petit Manseng, Traminer and Semillon, Poggio Argentato presents itself as a white wine with a French sway within which the good structure, given by the territory of Maremma, is balanced by its acidity and minerality, and the elegance of northern vines.
Bright yellow with greenish tints. On the nose, prevalence of white flowers and notes of cut grass evolve in mineral tones. Fresh and persistent in the mouth.
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.
