2014 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Italy

$149.99 USD

Emidio Pepe founded his winery in 1964, after working alongside his father and his grandfather which already back in 1889 were making wine at Casa Pepe. Before anyone else, he strongly believed in the great ageing potential of Trebbiano and Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and he dedicated all his energies to those two indigenous grape varietals, proving their incredible potential and showing it to the entire world.

Tasting Note
Deep coloured with aromas of dark berries, dark plums, black cherry and other black, rather than red, fruit notes. Very clean and vibrant wine offering considerable immediate appeal. Finishes with building tannin and good length. Emidio Pepe is one of Abruzzo’s reference-point producers. These traditionally made wines can show some rough edges when they are young, but they rarely disappoint when given an opportunity to mature in the cellar; these reds improve spectacularly with bottle age, showing their best at 8 to 10 years from the vintage.
