2006 Poggio Valente, Fattoria Le Pupille, Elisabetta Geppetti, Tuscany

The 2006 Poggio Valente is just entering its drinking window, and is a beautiful example of a ready-to-drink Tuscan red. Notes of pot pourri and exotic spices swirl from the nose, while on the palate there’s still a core of intense cherries, and a hint of mulberry. The tannins are firm but refined, and there’s mouthwatering acidity on the finish. It’s a beautiful wine to enjoy now, or over the next five to ten years.

2006 Poggio Valente, Fattoria Le Pupille, Elisabetta Geppetti, Tuscany
Fattoria Le Pupille

Elisabetta Geppetti inherited this estate in 1985, and quickly set it on course for greatness. In 1992, she became president on the local winemakers’ consortium, earning the nickname “the Lady of Morellino”. Her efforts have been complemented by some superb consultants, including Giacomo Tachis, who professionalised production at Tenuta San Guido, Christian Sommer, formerly of Château Latour, and currently Luca d’Attoma, described by Antonio Galloni as “the hottest winemaker in Tuscany right now”.
