Fattoria Le Pupille

There are a number of quality-minded producers hidden away in the coastal regions of Tuscany, of which one of the best is Le Pupille. The coastal regions include, from north to south, Costa degli Etruschi, Montescudaio, Bolgheri, Val di Cornia, Massa Marittima and Scansano - Le Pupille is located in the latter, which is the longest established. Morellino is the local name for Sangiovese. The estate is owned by Elisabetta Geppetti. The wines have been made under a number of well known consultants, including Ricardo Cottarella, but most recently it is Christian le Sommer who advises - when he isn't too busy at Châteaux Lafite and Latour, where he is also employed.

The wines include a delicious, approachable Morellino di Scansano, as well as a Morellino di Scansano Riserva, the cru Poggio Valente and Saffredi, a Cabernet Merlot blend, which did much to put this estate on the map.
