This Montepulciano 2015 from Emidio Pepe will only improve over the next 5 to 10 years.
2015: This young and bold juice shows pronounced and concentrated aromas of black fruit, leather, meat, spices, earth, smoke and liquorice mixed with great truffle notes which will only get stronger!
"Mid crimson. Lifted, youthful and concentrated nose that is a little peppery. Crushed-blueberry nose with a layer of spice. Gorgeous, succulent blueberry and raspberry fruit with firm, grainy tannins. Loads of potential and already irresistible, but needs more time." (Walter Speller for Janisrobinson.com, July 2020)
