Fattoria Le Pupille Poggio Valente Toscana 2019
Bright ruby red. The bouquet reveals notes of red roses, black cherry, blood orange and blackberry. Juniper berries, dried flowers, Tuscan cigars and undergrowth follow. Full-bodied and intense with silky and dense tannins. Persistent finish with hints of black currant.
95 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This wine always stands out in my mind, and it's worth dedicating a few words as to why. Poggio Valente offers us a rare opportunity to taste Sangiovese made according to the highest standards but from a territory—on the Tuscan Coast—that does not share a big legacy with monovarietal Sangiovese reds. The Fattoria le Pupille 2019 Poggio Valente was born in a happy vintage with a cool spring and a growing season that had plenty of underground water reserves to keep the vines hydrated well until the end of August. This is a full and generous wine with dark cherry and wild plum aromas that segue to tar, licorice and crushed slate. My sample (tasted a few weeks after bottling) was a little shy initially, but it quickly blossomed in the glass.
95 James Suckling
This is very dense and structured with stone and blackberry characters. Full-bodied and intense with chewy tannins that frame the wine. Flavorful finish. Smoky and lightly bitter, in a good way. Pure Sangiovese. This needs time to soften. Better after 2024.
