Heiner Lobenberg über:
Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2001


Lobenberg: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo vom neben Valentini bedeutendsten Erzeuger dieser Rebsorte in Italien. In Würde zu Größe und Trinkreife gealtert. 95/100


Wine Spectator über: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

-- Wine Spectator: Dark and tightly wound, with iron, wild herb and cocoa notes backed by full tannins wrapping the firm dark cherry and plum skin notes, ending with dark tar, graphite and bitter almond. Hide this in the cellar for a few years. Non-blind Emidio Pepe vertical (May 2013). Best from 2016 through 2030. 95/100


Parker über: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

-- Parker: This bottle (#31310) of Emidio Pepe’s 2001 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is incredibly dark in color. It is a rich, concentrated wine bursting with black cherries, smoke, tar and underbrush. This is normally a more restrained wine, but this particular bottle was especially rich and dense. Pepe’s Montepulciano’s are legendary for their ability to age beautifully and I have no doubt that will be the case here as well. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2031. 92/100


Jancis Robinson über: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

-- Jancis Robinson: Blackberry and charred beef, smooth and liquorice on the palate. Doesn't seem to be blossoming quite as you might expect – such a slow burner, this one! Firm tannins, almost Nebbiolo-esque. Tightly wound. 17,5/20


Galloni über: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

-- Galloni: This 2001 is still youthfully dark red (you can immediately tell why some famous Italian winemakers like to blend Montepulciano into Sangiovese wines), with rich aromas of flavors of ripe red cherry, botanical herbs, tar and shoe polish. The finish is long and lively; unfortunately, the tannins turn a bit dry at the back, but were less noticeable when drinking this along a rich stew or grilled ribeye. 91/100


Wine Enthusiast über: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

-- Wine Enthusiast: Emidio Pepe shows excellent results with the 2001 vintage of his landmark Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. Made according to rigorous organic principles, the wine shows dark fruit and blackberry with bold leather and tobacco at the back. The tannins are polished and tight but the wine still shows more years of aging potential ahead. 90/100

Emidio Pepe

Emidio Pepe ist eine Ikone des italienischen Weinbaus. Seit 1964 produziert das gleichnamige Weingut in Torano Nuovo im Norden der Abruzzen Montepulciano und Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, zu einer Zeit, in der niemand an das Potential dieser Sorten glaubte.
