Description

The finesse and aromatic richness of a Tuscan red wine from Fattoria Le Pupille

The estate

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.

The vineyard

Fattoria Le Pupille oversees a 75-hectare terroir, and 20 hectares of land designated for the production of the estate’s olive oil.

The wine

The estate’s iconic wine, Saffredi de Fattoria Le Pupille was created from the desire of the owner, Elisabetta Geppetti, to produce a great Maremma Toscana wine. Produced with the IGT Maremma Toscana Rosso appellation, Saffredi was first made in 1987 with the precious help of oenologist Giacomo Tachis, from the vineyard of Magliano. The vineyard covers 14 hectares and is situated at an altitude of 250 metres. The soil is made up of sandstone, marl, iron minerals and clay. Saffredi de Fattoria Le Pupille is a tribute to Elisabetta's mentor, Fredi, who inspired her passion for wine.

Winemaking and ageing

Fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 26°C. Maceration for 30-45 days. Ageing for 18 months in French oak barrels (of which 70% were new).
