Emidio Pepe's Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is one of the legendary wines of Italian winemaking. A bottle that needs no introduction produced by one of the best known and most respected wineries in Italy.
Produced with pure grapes of the homonymous vine, coming from 30-year-old vines that rest on clayey and medium-textured soil. In the vineyard, the dictates of organic agriculture are scrupulously followed, integrating them with some biodynamic practices, although the idea of grapes and healthy land was already inherent in Emidio's mentality. In the cellar we continue with manual destemming of the bunches and spontaneous alcoholic fermentation in vitrified cement tanks, followed by bottling and decanting by hand without filtration. The liquid ages 24 months in concrete containers.
In the glass it is purple, on the nose it presents a great complexity, capable of evolving in an impressive way with the passage of time, so much so that if as a young man it squares vinous and fresh fruit references, it subsequently enriches its profile with references to graphite, earth and undergrowth.
A fantastic wine that cannot be missing in the cellars of great fans of the genre.
