Fattoria Le Pupille Poggio Valente 2016

Poggio Valente is a cru vineyard located in Pereta, near Scansano and was purchased by Elisabetta Geppetti in 1996. The focus of the project here was on the Sangiovese grape and within a few years the wine became another significant milestone with its expression of Maremma’s terroir. Matured for 18 months in new oak Poggio Valente is a medium ruby red in colour. The nose shows hints of red and black fruits with distinct aromas of blackberry, cherry and black plum, following notes of tobacco, nutmeg and forest floor. The palate is elegant and balanced, with sweet and silky tannins. Perfect served with fillet of beef and green pepper or polenta with wild boar - one of the classic dishes of Maremma’s cuisine.
