    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
