      Fruity, floral and delicately spicy nuances in the bouquet. On the palate medium texture, pleasant red berry taste. An uncomplicated drinking pleasure. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright pinkish red with a sparkling core. Very appealing nose of dried tomatoes and a pinch of oregano, red berries and some orange. Fine and balanced mouth, spans an elegant arch, with a slight melting, floral bouquet, great length, drinks very well". Falstaff

      "Freshened up with a tiny percent of Vermentino, this Syrah-based Rosato offers pretty aromas of rose petals within its beautifully floral and intense bouquet. There are some toasted almond notes in there too. You'll notice a pretty vibrancy and good freshness to the 2018 RosaMati, making it a qualified candidate for a buttery scampi dish." Robert Parker

      "Brilliant refreshing qualities to this pale-colored rosé, such as bright citrus, pink guava and rose apples. Light to medium body, plenty of acidity crunch and a zesty, floral finish." James Suckling

    • "Poggio Argentato" Bianco Toscana IGT 2018

      “Poggio Argentato” Bianco Toscana IGT 2018

      Poggio Argentato is a beautifully balanced white with a French touch. In the nose a multi-layered bouquet with fine herbal notes. On the palate strong, fresh, elegant and carried by a mineral acidity, citrus tones in the aftertaste. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2018 Poggio Argentato is a fresh white that benefitted from a cool May and June and plenty of rain in August. The blend is 60% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Petit Manseng, 10% Traminer and 5% Semillon. Fermented in tonneaux, the wine has a very precise bouquet, although the mouthfeel still needs to take on more volume and weight. There are nice little aromas of white flowers and honeysuckle. Give this one a few more months in the bottle to take on more weight before serving it along side a plate of spaghetti with vongole and chopped parsley." Robert Parker

      "This is precise and pretty with sliced apples and limes, as well as mineral undertones. Full body. Dry and flavorful. Bright finish." James Suckling

      "The 2016 Poggio Valente is precise and direct, the result of a lot of enological brain power and Coastal Tuscany's answer to Brunello Montalcino.

    • "Saffredi" Rosso Toscana IGT 2016

      “Saffredi” Rosso Toscana IGT 2016

      Floral nose with a lot of red, warm fruit and delicate herbal notes. On the palate it is smooth and elegant with a wonderful depth and structure. Then again herbs, in addition violets, some plum and a touch of tar and leather. Saffredi literally sneaks up on him until he then goes into a very long and harmonious finish with an impressive presence and elegance. One of the great Italian wines from an equally great Tuscany vintage! SUPERIORE.DE

      "From the dream year. Cool, very precisely woven bouquet with dense aromas of red and black fruits, wonderfully floral with violets and lavender, along with spicy and ethereal notes of Mediterranean kitchen herbs, leather, chocolate and liquorice. On the palate, it is just as powerful and loaded with dense, blackberry fruit, but with linear discipline, as it remains powerful and gripping until the long final, which again offers the full range of aromas". Weinwisser

      "Deep ruby with a fine violet hue. Intense and dense nose, shows notes of pickled blackberries, plums and cassis, lots of cardamom. On the palate it shows a lot of ripe berry fruit, round and smooth, lots of blackberry and blackcurrant, present, well integrated tannin, very long and persistent. Falstaff

      "A generally uneventful growing season led to good ripening at a measured pace. It's a radiant, deep colour with an elegant, fresh nose of floral and patisserie aromas leading to a palate which has the same elegant cast and freshness, but it’s also concentrated and sweet-fruited, with lively, intense black fruit and notes of forest-floor, fresh bay leaf and spicy sandalwood. It has a very good future, underpinned by fine, persistent tannins." Decanter

      "One of the highlights in this range, the 2016 Saffredi is a hugely promising wine marked by a beguiling combination of vertical structure, energy and concentration. Black cherry, lavender, spice, plum, sage and lavender all pulse with remarkable energy. Massive and yet remarkably vivid for such an intense wine, the 2016 is shaping up to be a real jewel of a wine." Vinous

      "This vintage is compact, firm and precise, with lovely floral aromas on the bouquet in front of blackberry and plum. Long oak toasting gives the wine tasty notes of spice and cinnamon and rounds the bouquet off nicely. The mouthfeel is soft and velvety. This is a complex, integrated and absolutely beautiful wine." Robert Parker

      "Incredible aromas of dark berries, lavender, rosemary, licorice and dried flowers. Spice. Full body and fantastic tannin texture with great length. Goes on for minutes. Muscular yet wonderfully formed and refined. A glorious Saffredi."  James Suckling (Platz 12 - TOP-Weine Italien 2018)

      "From the hot and dry year Amazingly cool woven bouquet with dense aromas of black fruits, blackberry, chocolate and roasted mocha, also the typical spicy and ethereal scent of Mediterranean maquis is there. Intense and creamy, dense palate shows the face of the vintage, which thanks to earlier harvest has enough freshness and drive to keep the enormous fullness and inner strength elegantly and skilfully in check. Great performance in such a hot year. Way to go! Can be drunk soon." Weinwisser

      "A dry, warm year produced an early harvest of high-quality, concentrated, thick-skinned grapes. The blend remains 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. It has intense, bright aromas of black cherries and berries. The palate is tight, with concentrated fruit, dark chocolate and coffee, alongside firm, fine-textured, sustained tannins. Tightly packed, focused and elegantly balanced. Very promising." Decanter

      "Gorgeous blackberries, dark chocolate, spice and lightly roasted coffee. Full body. Layered and creamy. Lovely, silky tannins that melt into the wine. A beautiful red from the vintage with class and finesse to the depth of fruit." James Suckling

      "Wow, there is a very impressive freshness here that defies the heat of this vintage. The 2017 Saffredi does not seem like a 2017 at all. Now celebrating its 30th birthday, Saffredi is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. Thanks to the vineyard's proximity to the sea, leaving leaves on the vines and the sharp diurnal shifts of the area, the fruit was able to ripen in a balanced manner despite the hot and dry summer. The team at Fattoria le Pupille knew they would have to be ready to harvest early and lose some their yields, and they did. In the end, production was down 25%, but the result is a fresh, thick and beautiful red made with ripe fruit and dark concentration. This is a great effort from Fattoria le Pupille." Robert Parker

    • Syrah Toscana IGT 2015

      Syrah Toscana IGT 2015

      Le Pupille has a new wine. A long cherished vision of Elisabetta and her daughter Clara finds its completion in this crescence. This 100% Syrah builds on everything that the winery has achieved in recent years and for which it has gained world renown. The best grapes, careful selection and a sensitive, clever and innovative winemaking combined with a clearly recognizable signature and the already proverbial quality fanaticism.

      The grapes for the first vintage (2015) of this exceptional wine come from the two estate vineyards Pian di Fiora and La Vigna del Palo. Pian di Fiora is the cooler site, with just 5 hectares, the grapes are destemmed by hand and then fermented in 500l clay amphoras. The grapes of the east-facing vineyard La Vigna del Palo are fermented in open 500l barrels. The wines are then married and matured in 300l barriques for another 10 months before the wines are then bottle aged for another 22 months.

      Intense, deep red with dark ruby reflections. In the nose fresh notes of red berry fruits and spices, hints of black pepper. On the palate it is complex, with gripping tannin, a fine acid wire and a wonderfully balanced body. It has a great storage potential and is for us the classic meditation wine in appearance and expression. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Densely woven, with super-fine tannin, dark berry fruit, hints of brown bread, dried goya berries, brine syrup and a slightly iodine note: an elegant, special wine that has absolutely nothing in common with the Syrah plants of the Northern Rhône, even if this is repeatedly claimed. I drank the 2015 at Milan's Restaurant Vun, where two-star chef Andrea Aprea served it with a shoulder of lamb and malted barley. Phenomenal." Dr. Jens Priewe (weinkenner.de)

      "Mineral and spicy bouquet, very elegant and calming, yet very broad with earthy and tobacco notes with iron notes reminiscent of blood. Surprisingly fruity on the palate, but clear as a bell, almost pure and crisp, completely different style, very exciting and with a lot of finesse. A top Maremma Syrah." Weinwisser

      "After a little aeration delicate aromas of dark forest fruits, flowers, spicy and smoky notes; polished in the mouth, the fine-grained tannins and the airy acidity in balance, shows race and cut to the final. Elegant, full of esprit and a delightful proof that a Syrah from Tuscany cannot be compared to any other Syrah (or Shiraz) in the world". Vinum

      "This debut vintage is a classic expression of Syrah. With fruit drawn from 34-year-old vines, fermented both in terracotta amphorae (acquired from the Manetti family of Fontodi fame) and open-top tonneaux, then aged ten months in French barrique, the 2015 Le Pupille shows all the typical notes of Syrah and a nice roundness of tannin. It is a very tight wine that is layered and beautiful, carefully crafted to avoid reduction. This new line should be a winner for years to come. Congratulations." Robert Parker

      "This is a new wine from Le Pupille and made in amphorae and large barrels. The aromas are a dead ringer for Côte-Rôtie! So much smoked meat, spice and dark fruit. Full-bodied, juicy and succulent with plenty of dark fruit and then a long and flavorful finish that shows gamey and earthy undertones. Clean and vivid. 3,000 bottles produced." James Suckling

    • "Saffredi" Rosso Toscana IGT 2014 <br>Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      “Saffredi” Rosso Toscana IGT 2014 · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Saffredi was born in 1987 and is named after its location in the municipality of Magliano. This is where the grapes from which this monumental masterpiece is made originate. Only the colour deep dark ruby red, with interesting violet reflections shows a pompous wine of great terroir. In the very expressive bouquet there is a wonderful abundance of floral and earthy aromas, which harmonize beautifully with the scent of red berries. On the palate a concentrated fruit, very soft and deep, structured and endlessly long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich, deep dark ruby with a slight violet hue. Opened with spicy notes of sandalwood and tobacco, followed by rich notes of ripe forest blueberries, fleshy. On the palate dense and compact in approach and course, shows much dark berry fruit, clear and full, fine-meshed tannin, floats long there, long reverberation." Falstaff

      "Dense purple. Intense, radiant, clear bouquet with dark and blueberry fruits (blackcurrant, blueberry), earthy-smoky aromas with a touch of graphite, tobacco and sweet (liquorice) spices and precious woods. There is a lot of Cabernet spice resonating. On the palate it is intense, rich and with a densely interwoven structure, linear and clear, showing great freshness, finesse and presence, with a finely polished tannin structure, persistent intensity and a long aftertaste." Weinwisser

      "Sexy blueberry, spice and black pepper. Mushroom. Full body and ultra-fine tannins. Extremely long and just starting to come around now. Needs a little more time in bottle. Splendid finish. Try in 2019 but already amazing." James Suckling

      "This perfumed red offers aromas of cedar, sage, black currant and oak spice. Vivid acidity drives the complex flavors, with substantial grip on the finish." Wine Spectator

      "Offers good depth and translucence in the mid-weight style of the year. Grilled herb, lavender, plum, menthol and sage are some of the many nuances that are woven together in this distinctly mid-weight Saffredi. Although a touch slender, as so many wines are in this vintage, the 2014 Saffredi has quite a bit of staying power and overall persistence. As is so often the case with wines from cooler years, time in the glass does wonders here." Antonio Galloni

    • "Saffredi" Rosso Toscana IGT 2017 <br>Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      “Saffredi” Rosso Toscana IGT 2017 · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Deep dark ruby red. Floral nose with a lot of red, warm fruit and delicate herbal notes. On the palate it is smooth and elegant with a wonderful depth and structure. Then again herbs, in addition violets, some plum and a touch of tar and leather. Saffredi literally sneaks up on him until he then goes into a very long and harmonious finish with an impressive presence and elegance. One of the great wines of Italy full of elegance! SUPERIORE.DE

      "From the hot and dry year Amazingly cool woven bouquet with dense aromas of black fruits, blackberry, chocolate and roasted mocha, also the typical spicy and ethereal scent of Mediterranean maquis is there. Intense and creamy, dense palate shows the face of the vintage, which thanks to earlier harvest has enough freshness and drive to keep the enormous fullness and inner strength elegantly and skilfully in check. Great performance in such a hot year. Way to go! Can be drunk soon." Weinwisser

      "A dry, warm year produced an early harvest of high-quality, concentrated, thick-skinned grapes. The blend remains 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. It has intense, bright aromas of black cherries and berries. The palate is tight, with concentrated fruit, dark chocolate and coffee, alongside firm, fine-textured, sustained tannins. Tightly packed, focused and elegantly balanced. Very promising." Decanter

      "Gorgeous blackberries, dark chocolate, spice and lightly roasted coffee. Full body. Layered and creamy. Lovely, silky tannins that melt into the wine. A beautiful red from the vintage with class and finesse to the depth of fruit." James Suckling

      "Wow, there is a very impressive freshness here that defies the heat of this vintage. The 2017 Saffredi does not seem like a 2017 at all. Now celebrating its 30th birthday, Saffredi is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. Thanks to the vineyard's proximity to the sea, leaving leaves on the vines and the sharp diurnal shifts of the area, the fruit was able to ripen in a balanced manner despite the hot and dry summer. The team at Fattoria le Pupille knew they would have to be ready to harvest early and lose some their yields, and they did. In the end, production was down 25%, but the result is a fresh, thick and beautiful red made with ripe fruit and dark concentration. This is a great effort from Fattoria le Pupille." Robert Parker

    About the winemakers
    Le Pupille
    Tuscany | Maremma
    Le Pupille

    The name of the winery has nothing to do with the eyes of the owner, because "pupil" means in Tuscan parlance as much as "hill". On one of the numerous elevations of the Maremma near Istia d'In the early 1980s, Elisabetta Geppetti, mother of five children, took over an abandoned farmhouse with a manor house east of Grosseto and restored it in the typical Tuscan style. The winemaker and art historian is full of energy and joie de vivre. With her wines produced at Fattoria Le Pupille, she has not only created a masterpiece that combines tradition with modernity, but has also made a declaration of love for the region that came to be honoured late. Elisabethta's noble drops reflect the terroir of the Maremma precisely, but also impress with elegance and finesse.

    The agile winemaker, supported by her eldest daughter Clara, is one of the founding members of the Consorzio del Morellino di Scansano, for which she was president until recently. Together with her partner, the company, which is known as the "La Signora del Morellino" the landowner also described two restaurants. Elisabetta Geppetti was already active in this area when the Denomination Morellino di Scansano was founded at the end of the seventies. But although it was to fill its first vintage a little later, it did not gain complete control of the winery until 1985, when it was re-founded. Since the quality of the wine increased steadily from then on, the fame also increased. Today the 420-hectare estate cultivates 75 hectares of vineyards spread over different parts of the Maremma.

    With the market launch of Saffredi, the showpiece of the house, from a single vineyard near Magliano, Fattoria Le Pupille hurried from success to success from 1987 onwards. None other than the old master Giacomo Tachis had the first vintage of the "Tachis", built according to all the rules of the art. "supertuscan" was launched. No less excellent is the Morellino di Scansano from the top location Poggio Valente. Since the turn of the millennium, the Bordeaux star oenologist Christian Le Sommer has been responsible for winemaking as Riccardo Cottarella's successor. The exquisite wines of the estate have not only found their way into luxury restaurants and exquisite vinotheques in their own country, but also around the globe. Numerous awards, such as the 2006 award from the magazine "The gourmet" award given "Winemaker of the year"The high status of the wine house is documented by the SUPERIORE.DE

    "There is always a single face that stands for a region: a producer with the charisma and communicative skills to act as an ambassador to bring wines produced in a relatively obscure region to the world stage. In the Maremma, this person is Elisabetta Geppetti."Robert Parker
