EMIDIO PEPE Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2018
EMIDIO PEPE Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
-The history-
Emidio Pepe founded his winery in 1964, after working alongside his father and his grandfather which already back in 1889 where making wine at Casa Pepe.

Before anyone else, he strongly believed in the great ageing potential of Trebbiano and Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and he dedicated all his energies to those two indigenous grape varietals, proving their incredible potential and showing it to the entire world.

Born in 1932, a man of few words, determined and attentive observer.

Solid values and precise ideas in his mind.

Tireless worker, he continues today to take care of all his vineyards personally, from the pruning to the harvest. Observes carefully the signals that Nature gives him and with the special sensibility developed during the over fifty years of harvests, he interprets them and he accompanies his vines and grapes becoming into wine with out ever interfering.

Attentive custodian of his terroir, he protected his soils and his wines from chemicals and he based all his empirical work on the respect of traditions and on the authentic and genuine expression of his wines.
The Montepulciano d'Abruzzo by Emidio Pepe is the "King" of the absolute varieties of Abruzzo. Emidio Pepe is a producer who has believed from the beginning in the potential of this wine which, until a few years ago, it was considered a "wine ready to drink".

The Montepulciano d'Abruzzo by Emidio Pepe is a clear example of biodynamic wine, a wine as it was once typical and recognizable, with a style that combined the creativity of an artist craftsman, a quality wine that is founded on uniqueness of the terroir in which it is produced. The nourishment and tillage are the strong point of biodynamic agriculture and experience in this field, Emidio has to sell.

Een intens robijnrode wijn met violetkleurige nuances. Een karaktervolle wijn met een intens aroma van pruimen, kersen, bessen en gedroogde kruiden. Een toets van vanille op het einde zorgt voor een soepele, droge afdronk. Deze wijn gaat perfect samen met vlees (rood), wild, pasta’s en stoofpotjes.

Il Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC 2018 della cantina Ciavolich, i suoi vigneti di produzione di questo Montepulciano si trovano a Pianella (PE), la cui caratteristica è quella di essere posizionati vicino ad un piccolo laghetto naturale. La vicinanza al lago permette alle radice di essere umide anche nei periodi più siccitosi. Tale freschezza la si ritrova anche nel vino, vinificato in acciaio per mantenere inalterata questa naturale caratteristica. Le uve dopo essere selezionate e raccolte a mano vengono portate in cantina per essere pigia-diraspate e vinificate all'interno di serbatoi d'acciaio inox a temperatura controllata a cui segue solo un delestage. L'affinamento, dopo l'imbottigliamento a un anno e mezzo dalla vinificazione, continua in bottiglia per circa 6 mesi.
