Parker über: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

-- Parker: Pepe’s 2003 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is a bomb. Tar, leather, scorched earth and black fruit emerge from this dark, imposing Montepulciano. The wine comes together beautifully in the glass, as the aromas and flavors gain breadth and dimension. Despite the rich style, there is nothing excessive or over-ripe here, just exceptional balance of ripe fruit as captured by a traditional approach to vinification. A final blast of tar informs the long finish. Pepe fans will flip over the 2003, but readers who prefer subtlety over power will want to cellar this for a few years to allow for some of the baby fat to melt away. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2028. 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. 94/100

Wine Spectator über: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

-- Wine Spectator: Ripe and aromatic, with an undercurrent of cured olive, grilled rosemary, sanguine and dark roasted espresso running through the concentrated black cherry fruit. Well-defined, as juicy acidity keeps the long finish moving. Non-blind Emidio Pepe vertical (May 2013). Drink now through 2025. 2,750 cases made, 415 cases imported. 93/100

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.
