Product description
The southern Maremma, where this wine is made, is unique in Tuscany due to its coastal hills. The combination of altitude and sea breezes moderate the heat and produces an immensely fresh and elegant style of wine. The Riserva includes 10% Cabernet Sauvignon which adds more structure and polish, balancing a wine that is wonderful to drink now but would also reward a few years in your cellar. Monica Larner of the Wine Advocate frequently describes this wine as “excellent value"!

A bright, fruity wine with cherries and walnuts, as well as hints of burnt lemon. It’s medium-bodied with pretty fruit and a fruity finish. Hints of bark add to the complexity. Delicious and balanced. Drink now.

The Fattoria le Pupille 2017 Morellino di Scansano Riserva is a beautifully enriched and nicely concentrated expression. This hot vintage red 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 personality 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. Drink: 2020-2030 (Nov 2020).

The 2017 Morellino di Scansano Riserva is a gorgeous, exotic wine. Juicy dark cherry, mocha, plum and exotic floral notes give the 2017 its effusive, racy personality. High-toned aromatics add allure on the silky finish. The 2017 spent 18 months in a variety of casks ranging from 20hL to 40hL. Drink: 2020-2027.
