This selection is the ultimate introduction to Emidio Pepe’s philosophy and the terroir of Abruzzo.
The Trebbiano comes from 40-year-old vines on clay and limestone, crushed in a wooden vat by foot then aged in cement vats for a year.
Trebbiano d’Abruzzo is an elegant variety. It becomes complex and refined with ageing, and more than any other variety can express the weather of the season, becoming a strong voice of its terroir. This bottle is perfect to enjoy with mushroom-based pasta and would benefit from being opened an hour before.
The Pecorino was planted in 2007 and the first vintage was released in 2010. It's made in the same way as the Trebbiano but aged for only 6 months.
The wine shows a beautiful acidity with a light spritz. It's medium to full-bodied with hints of dried mint, almond blossom & orange zest. Open the bottle 30 minutes before you want to drink it to give it some air. It perfectly pairs with grilled fish or white meat.
The Montepulciano comes from vines that are over 50 years old and are planted over clay & limestone. It is then aged for 2 years in concrete tanks.
This young and bold juice shows pronounced aromas of black fruit, meat, earth, smoke and liquorice mixed with truffle notes which will only get stronger! It's well-born with elegant tannins and will age nicely for a decade or two. This is the perfect wine for romantic dinners centred around braised game dishes.
