Montepulciano d'Abruzzo D.O.C.G. - Emidio Pepe
Montepulciano d'Abruzzo D.O.C.G. from the famous wine producer Emidio Pepe in Abruzzo. A winemaker that has played a leading role in the development of natural biological wines. This Intense ruby red wine is made 100% from Montepulciano d'Abruzzo grapes, an ancient and indigenous grape variety from Abruzzo. The wine has an aromatic bouquet with slightly balsamic spicy notes tending towards herbaceous. The taste is full-body - soft and round, the tannin is present but not intrusive. It reflects the bouquet in a concentration of flavors. A truly age worthy wine that will evolve with time - after few years it gains complexity, volume and profoundness.
Emidio Pepe founded his winery in 1964, after working alongside his father and his grandfather which already back in 1889 where 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.
This Montepulciano d'Abruzzo red wine is produced from 30-year-old vines that grow in clayey and medium-textured soil in the hilly area at an altitude of 600 m. near the sea and north of Pescara in Abruzzo. In the vineyard, the dictates of organic farming are scrupulously followed, integrating them with some biodynamic practices. The grapes were manually harvested, sorted and destemmed before the spontaneous alcoholic fermentation in vitrified cement tanks using natural yeasts. The wine aged for 24 months in concrete tanks.followed by manual decantation without filtration prior to the bottling.
