    Elisabetta Geppetti, the powerhouse behind Fattoria Le Pupille, is a woman of exceptional energy and vision. She was only 20 years old when she first took the reins at her family’s property in Southern Tuscany in the 1980s. The winery is synonymous with Morellino di Scansano and Elisabetta has been instrumental in placing this appellation on the map of wine lovers, producing excellent value Sangiovese and gaining global fame with the area’s first Super-Tuscan, Saffredi. Her children Clara and Ettore are now instrumental in the winery, and together are working to look toards the future.
