Buy Fattoria le PupilLe Morellino di Scansano Riserva Poggio Valente
Wine Advocate 93 points - Fattoria Le Pupille’s 2009 Morellino di Scansano Riserva Poggio Valente takes a little while to fully appreciate. As you first approach the glass, you are hit by a massive wave of black truffle and forest floor. The wine is dominated by a wild and rustic personality that so faithfully mirrors the territory that shaped it. After a few minutes those truffle aromas start to lift, revealing small berry nuances and delicate dustings of exotic spice. Worth noting also is the acidic freshness on display. I came back to this wine 30 minutes and one hour later. Each time, it had gained in elegance and finesse. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.  (Aug 2013)

Wine Enthusiast 89 points - Poggio Valente opens with a fragrance of ripe black cherry, oak and vanilla. The palate delivers cherry and plum layered with mint, toasted oak, chocolate and coffee notes. It has soft tannins and is already at its ideal drinking window so enjoy soon. (Dec 2013)

The Poggio Valente vineyard - planted with four different clones of Sangiovese - represents Elisabetta Geppetti’s commitment to the Sangiovese grape. A small amount of Merlot is blended to add body and a lush character to this cru wine.
