Fattoria Le Pupille Morellino di Scansano 2021
Elisabetta Geppetti took over the small Le Pupille estate in coastal Maremma from her family in 1995. With the help of the legendary Giacomo Tachis, the pioneering winemaker at Antinori, she quickly established a reputation for turning out some of the region’s greatest wines.
