94pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The beautiful Fattoria le Pupille 2019 Morellino di Scansano Riserva is Sangiovese cut with about 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit represents a special selection taken from the estate's classic Morellino vineyards. The Riserva sees 15 months in large oak casks and one year in bottle, giving it more time to flesh out and integrate. The wine shows rich density on the mid-palate with aromas of black cherry, spice and earth. The upcoming 2020 vintage was quite hot for a grape such as Sangiovese, and the 2021 growing season was even hotter in this corner of Maremma.

90pts Wine Spectator

Boasts black cherry and kirsch flavors that permeate the glycerol texture, shaded by black pepper, earth and sage. Firmly structured yet balanced, with dusty tannins on the finish. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red, sparkling. The smells are those of red fruits, out of which cherry, typical of Sangiovese, seems to really stand out. The larger wooden barrelsallow for a greater evolution in the balsamic notes and spiciness. In the mouth the tannins’ refinement balances the softness, making the wine harmonious and pleasantly persistent.

Perfect with fist courses based with elaborated sauces, red meat based second courses or game, as well as with aged cheeses with mustards.

About the Winery

The operating nucleus of the property, from early 2000, is in proximity of Istia d'Ombrone, nearby Grosseto. The property is an antique farmhouse and its silhouette is present in some of the most recognizable wine labels of Le Pupille, the whole winery is surrounded by a 12 hectares vineyard, including a small patch destined to an experimentation of old Sangiovese grapes, coming from ancient vine rows. At first it is difficult to imagine that this large, quiet house is the beating heart of an agricultural activity, it rather seems like a noble residency surrounded by a large english style lawn and a myriad of flowers. Then the smell of must reveals the presence of a winery hidden by ivy, and once one enters the well-finished environment, the offices and tasting room appear like a succession of drawing rooms that the house owner has made to be warm and welcoming.
