The elegance and vivacity of a great Tuscan wine
Located in south-west Tuscany, the Fattoria le Pupille estate has become a benchmark name. Elisabetta Geppetti, nicknamed «The Lady of Morellino,» has for 20 years put all her passion and ambition into making the estate a standard-bearer among the great Italian wines. She is a pioneer in developing the vine stock of the estate, planting Sangiovese, typical grape of Tuscany, as well as international varietals.
This Poggio Valente 2020 from Fattoria Le Pupille is an IGT Toscana wine made from a 12-hectare vineyard facing south-west at an altitude of 280 metres. This hilly terroir is unique because of its sand, sandstone and clay soil. Located in the Tuscan village of Pereta, Poggio Valente has been owned by Fattoria Le Pupille since 1996.
