Morellino di Scansano Riserva Poggio Valente le Pupille 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

95+ Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:"TThe 2013 Morellino di Scansano Riserva Poggio Valente is a breakthrough wine for Fattoria le Pupille and its talented winemaking team. This is a complete and balanced expression that shows its best side to all the senses: its appearance is richly saturated and bright; the bouquet is intense and complex; and the mouthfeel shows elegance and power. In all, this wine tastes and feels much younger than it really is and I have high hopes for its future aging ability. It shows a great sense of inner energy and liveliness that makes it a pleasure to drink in the near term as well. Soft flavors of black cherry, spice and grilled herb wrap thickly over the palate." 1/17 94 Points, James Suckling: "A fascinating pure sangiovese with gorgeous blackberry and fresh mushroom character. Hints of spices. Full body yet bright and refined with a velvety tannin structure. Lovely complexity and savory character. Drink now." 11/16.
