Parker zu 2017 über: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

-- Parker zu 2017: This is one of the cornerstone producers of the Abruzzo, a winery that follows strict tradition but that also appeals to every new generation of wine drinker that encounters a bottle. The wines of Emidio Pepe are in a word, timeless. The 2017 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo flaunts its pedigree with elegant aromas of black fruit, smoke, tar and powdery licorice. Montepulciano d'Abruzzo fares well in the hot vintages such as 2017 thanks to the cool mountain climates of the region, and not only do you get deep textural richness here, the acidity is beautifully preserved and fresh as well. The tannins are firm and polished, all followed by delicate little accents of dried herb and crushed stone. 94/100

-- IWR zu 2017: The 2017 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is an absolutely outstanding wine from this legendary producer. The wine was aged concrete tanks for 2 years then it is bottled by hand without straining and aging in bottle. It instantly begins to impress as it opens to incredible aromatics of dark cherry reduction and red berries, which are laced with forest herbs, violets, spices, licorice and mineral nuances that all take shape in the glass. On the palate this beautifully defined and focused, with a vibrant core of dark red cherries and spices that priest throughout. It displays wonderful elegance and concentration all the way through the long finish. This is Emido Pepe's Italian release, which is made from younger vines, nonetheless it is a simply sensational wine that will continue to drink beautifully for quite some time. 94/100

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.
