This delicious fresh white wine from Fattoria Le Pupille called Poggio Argentato. The wine is a blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc, 15% Traminer, 15% Petit Manseng and 10% Semillon. In the glass, the Pupille has a straw-yellow color. In the nose you immediately notice the rich bouquet of white flowers such as hawthorn and acacia. The taste is soft, but supported by good acidity and juiciness. A rich, mineral wine with a French twist, the firm structure, originating from the Maremma territory, is offset by the acidity and elegance of northern vines.

The vineyards are located on a soil rich in clay and iron with a strong gravel component of sandstone. The Grapes come from vineyard Pian di Fiora (Pereta) and San Vittorio (Scansano), located at 200-250 meters above sea level, South-East oriented. On average 4500 to 6500 plants per hectare.

After picking, the grapes are first cooled and then softly pressed with skin soaking for 3 hours at low temperatures (16°C) in stainless steel tanks, followed by pressing. Alcoholic fermentation and spontaneous malolactic fermentation only for 1/3rd of the mass. Aging for 5 months in steel barrels, except for the Petit Manseng, which ferments and matures in new 500 liter barrels. The Poggio Argentato is perfect as an aperitif, with shellfish, raw fish, white meat and fresh cheeses, as well as with vegetable starters.
