Winemaker Notes

Rich garnet red in color, with opulent aromas of black plums, cassis, spice, cedar, and purple flowers, this wine exudes pedigree. Warm and luscious, the fruit expands on the palate as the polished tannins fill the mouth. The finish is long and lingers in the memory even longer than on the palate.

This wine would be the ideal companion to roasted beef tenderloin.

Blend: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 92
Vinous
Good bright medium-dark red. Musky aromas of ripe dark cherry, plum, sweet pipe tobacco and underbrush, complicated by a hint of graphite. Sweet, plush and deep; almost chunky in its voluptuous, fleshy mouthfeel, but shows more inner-mouth tension and edgy acidity than the Poggio Valente. Finishes broad, subtle and long, with big, ripe, youthful tannins and lingering flavors of red fruits and spices. I'd hold this for at least a couple years in search of more nuance. Incidentally, the 2010 bottling is still quite brooding today and is nowehere near ready to go.

Rating: 92+?

Fattoria Le Pupille Winery Image

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.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
