Four Stunning Wines from Emidio Pepe

2007 Emidio Pepe Trebbiano d’Ábruzzo

“Displays unusual richness and range for the varietal, with honeyed layers of Golden Delicious apple, Bosc pear and peach notes giv-ing way to a compact finish of baking spice, black licorice, lanolin and hot stone. Decant. Drink now through 2018.” 92 Points Wine Spectator

2003 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d’Ábruzzo

“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…”- 94 Points Wine Advocate

1985 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

“…another wine that is stunning today. A medium faded red, it opens with an alluring, ethereal nose followed by notes of tobacco, leather, stewed fruits and minerals. Much of the fruit has faded, yet this delicate, medium-bodied wine displays enough supporting structure and freshness to drink well for another ten years although it is a joy to drink right now. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016.” 91 points Robert Parker

1983 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

“1983 Pepe Montepulciano is a lovely vintage for this bottling, offering up all of the depth and complexity that this wine is so famous for and just a whisper of VA. The deep, complex and very classy nose offers up scents of black cherries, gamebirds, coffee bean, a note of spice meats that recalls salami and a beautifully complex base of soil tones. On the palate the wine is deep, fullbodied, tangy and now a point, with excellent focus and balance, melting tannins and lovely length and grip on the very suave finish. One has to have at least a little tolerance for volatile acidity to enjoy these wines, but I strongly suspect that a vintage such as the 1983 will fine nearly all wine lovers impressed with its complexity and style. 2011-2030.”
