The Fattoria le Pupille 2019 Morellino di Scansano is a bright and lively value wine that trusts its basic identity to cherry, dried raspberry and some wild bramble or rosemary essence. This is a lean and sprightly red wine that boats the freshness and intensity of Sangiovese along with the wild fruit and blue flower sensations that are most often associated with this mighty Tuscan grape. I could see a happy pairing with oven-cooked pasta or lasagna.
This is a terrific set of wines from Fattoria le Pupille. The 2018 Saffredi offers an accurate and classic expression of the vintage. As it so happens, I have recently had the opportunity to re-taste several bottles of the 2016 Saffredi (which I awarded 98 points) at various masterclasses and events I have guided. Coming back to that wine, I now detect a hint of animal musk that seems to have developed in the bottle. I'll record that comment here, but I look forward to revisiting that vintage in a more formal manner at the next opportunity.
