- About Fattoria Le Pupille
It was in the mid-1980s that Elisabetta Geppetti, only 20 years old at the time, inherited Fattoria Le Pupille from her father-in-law, who wasn’t interested in winemaking. Today, 30 years later, she is widely considered the woman who put Morellino di Scansano on the map of the world’s greatest appellations. She is also credited with giving the world a benchmark Super Tuscan, her family’s Saffredi, a label that has recently celebrated three decades of top scores and reviews. Located inland from but in view of the coast, the vineyards at Fattoria le Pupille lie at roughly 300 meters a.s.l. where they benefit from a natural day-night (diurnal) temperature shifts. The estate covers more than 400 hectares, with 75 hectares planted to vine. Although the winery is not certified, farming practices are entirely organic. Elisabetta still farms the winery’s original 25 “historic” hectares where her world-renowned Saffredi is grown.
