2019 Morellino di Scansano Riserva DOCG, Fattoria Le Pupille
"The 2019 Fattoria le Pupille Morellino di Scansano Riserva from the so-called Ladies of Morellino - mother and daughter Elisabetta Geppetti and Clara Gentili - in Tuscany's Maremma region is a striking example of this little-known wine. Made from 90 per cent Sangiovese (aka Morellino) and 10 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon, it's a beguiling ruby red with cherries, herbs and spice on nose and palate and it makes a fascinating contrast to other reds of the region."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine
The Fattoria le Pupille 2019 Morellino di Scansano Riserva is a beautifully enriched and nicely concentrated expression. This delicious wine opens to dark cherry, blackberry, dark earth and tobacco. The wine shows good balance, despite all the scorching temperatures and rainless weeks of the summer growing season. This Riserva puts forth a delicate and subdued personalty against all odds. It speaks of the hard work achieved to tame the unruly intensity and exaggerated richness of the vintage. It would pair with an autumnal dish such as risotto with porcini mushrooms.
