Wine Spectator über: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Vecchie Vigne

-- 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


Galloni über: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Vecchie Vigne

-- Galloni: The 2001 is a sultry and flirtatious vintage of Pepe’s Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Vecchie Vigne. Dark and a bit murky at first, it takes nearly an hour to blow off a musky, almost wooly mineral and animal-toned air; however, beneath it all, there are depths of tobacco, cherry sauce, scorched earth and a mentholated, herbal freshness that adds a wonderful lift. This soft, nearly-fleshy wine finds a lovely harmony through a mix of nervous acidity and citrus-tinged red fruits that add a highly energetic and almost-juicy feel. Blood orange nuances and a burst of inner sweetness mix with an inner sensation of wet autumn leaves (I know, I know, but it’s Pepe), as the 2001 finishes completely resolved, long and with a hint of balsamic spice that lingers on and on. While it takes a little work to unlock the 2001’s charms, good luck not devouring the entire bottle once it’s opened. 93/100


Parker über: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Vecchie Vigne

-- 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

Wine Enthusiast über: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Vecchie Vigne

-- 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.
