Fattoria le Pupille Poggio Argentato Bianco Toscana IGT 2017 is a Traminer and Sauvignon Blanc cuvee, adapted to the micro-climate of Maremma. Poggio Argentato presents itself like a white with a French tone, with a very feminine style, capable, with its pleasantness, of combining the sun of Maremma and the elegance of the great northern wines.
History: They have always been called Le Pupille, the pupils, those two farmhouses on the peak of two hills, turning their back to the medieval village Pereta. For long years there were no vineyards in the area, but cork oaks, wheat, mediterranean woods, the most classical scenery of a Maremma landscape of former days. In those times there was no recognized dignity of Maremma as a territory with great viticultural potentials and Morellino Di Scansano was a pleasant wine which surely did not aspire to compare itself with great Italian denominations. However, everything changed at Le Pupille thanks to the enthusiasm and intuition of Elisabetta Geppetti, a young student at the time, who had foreseen great productive potential in the countryside she loved, where she spent her summer holidays in her family’s house. Today Fattoria Le Pupille means 75 hectares of vineyards, over 500,000 bottles made every year, the presence in the markets of four continents and an undisputed role as Ambassador of Maremma.
The flagship white of the Gai’a portfolio, this wine is bone-dry with strong character: full-bodied, well-structured with crisp acidity, distinctive minerality and delicate honeysuckle aromas. This white wine will continue to evolve for 2-5 years, as the mineral notes soften the palate will develop more nuanced flavors of fruit and honey.
One of the pioneers of the modern Greek wine revolution, Gai’a Estate (pronounced Yay-ya) was established in 1994 by Leon Karatsalos and winemaker Yiannis Paraskevopoulos. Their mission was to capture the best that Greece’s indigenous grapes have to offer by merging traditional viticultural and production methods with innovative techniques. The estate is named after “Mother Earth,” in honor of the unique terroir that gives birth to these world-class wines.
The grapes for the Thalassitis (AKA “Originating from the Sea” in Greek) come from 70-80 year old vineyards located on the Southeastern slopes in Episkopi on the island of Santorini. The nutrient-poor, porous soils are composed largely of pumice; a uniquely harsh environment in which the native Assyrtiko is one of the few varietals that can thrive.
Perhaps, it is the only variety in the Mediterranean that manages to combine full maturity of grapes with considerably high acidity, despite the specific climatic conditions of the island. This fact is an essential factor for accomplishing flavor balance in dry white wines.
All the Assyrtiko grapes selected for THALASSITIS originate exclusively from vineyards in Episkopi, Akrotiri and Pyrgos regions. The vines in these regions are almost 80 years old.
The particularly low-yield that never exceeds 25 hl/ha combined with the terroir and the variety results an exuberant and nervous wine with a strong personality.
Enjoy it at 10oC with seafood, fish, shellfish or even lamb stewed in lemon sauce, generally with flavors of moderate intensity, where salt, sour or oil predominate.
A special feature of most Assyrtiko wines from Santorini is that despite their white color they behave like red wines! Try to age Thalassitis for 2 to 3 years at a temperature 12ο to 14οC and you will witness a change in it. Its mineral dimension will subside while the fruity and honey aromas will expand. Don’t forget to pour Thalassitis into a wide decanter half an hour before serving. You will definitely be pleased by the result!
