More information

The Morellino di Scansano Riserva DOCG from Fattoria Le Pupille appears a deep dark garnet in the glass. The bouquet has a seductive aroma of red fruits, accompanied by delicate balsamic aromas and Mediterranean spices. On the palate, this Morellino Riserva from Elisabetta Gepetti is very concentrated with a full, round body, beautifully balanced with firm and persistent tannins. The long, persistent finish closes with classic fruity and spicy nuances.

Vinification of the Morellino di Scansano Riserva DOCG from Fattoria Le Pupille

The Riserva represents the roots of Fattoria Le Pupille. It was the first wine to leave the winery in 1982 and comes from the 1978 vintage, the year in which the Morellino di Scansano DOC was created. The oldest vineyards are on average 30 years old up to the younger vineyards of 2002,m they are located at an altitude of 50 to 250 m.a.s.l.

The Morellino Riserva is vinified from 85% Sangiovese and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. The manual harvest takes place at the end of September for the Sangiovese and in the first half of October for the Cabernet Sauvignon. Only the best grapes are processed. Maceration on the skins for 20 days is followed by temperature-controlled fermentation and complete malolactic fermentation in stainless steel. The wine is then aged for 15 months in large 10-20-40 hl oak barrels. A total of 78,000 bottles are produced.
