Fattoria Le Pupille’s 2009 Morellino di Scansano Riserva Poggio Valente takes a little while to fully appreciate. As you first approach the glass, you are hit by a massive wave of black truffle and forest floor. The wine is dominated by a wild and rustic personality that so faithfully mirrors the territory that shaped it. After a few minutes those truffle aromas start to lift, revealing small berry nuances and delicate dustings of exotic spice. Worth noting also is the acidic freshness on display. I came back to this wine 30 minutes and one hour later. Each time, it had gained in elegance and finesse. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030. - Monica Larner

Rich, layered red with blueberry and chocolate character, plus hints of vanilla. Full body with round, velvety tannins. A moreish wine. Drink or hold.

Bright ruby-red. Spicy blueberry, cassis and aromatic herbs (bay leaf, cloves) on the nose. Sweet, plush and pliant, with bright, candied red berry and floral flavors complicated by spices and eart. The long finish... Bright ruby-red. Spicy blueberry, cassis and aromatic herbs (bay leaf, cloves) on the nose. Sweet, plush and pliant, with bright, candied red berry and floral flavors complicated by spices and eart. The long finish features silky-smooth tannins. Outstanding wine: in almost every vintage Poggio Valente is the best Morellino Riserva made.

Rich and smooth, sporting black cherry, plum, warm baking spice and mineral aromas and flavors. Shows some maturity, along with a touch of heat in the balance. Offers a fine, lingering finish. Drink now through 2018. – BS
