Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC 2020 BIO
From the vinification of 100% pure Montepulciano grapes. The origin is the classic one of the Teramo hills where the refined Abruzzo company operates. This wine is produced with pure grapes of the homonymous vine, coming from 30-year-old vines that rest on clayey and medium-textured soil. In the vineyard, the dictates of organic agriculture are scrupulously followed, integrating them with some biodynamic practices, although the idea of grapes and healthy land was already inherent in Emidio's mentality. In the cellar we continue with manual destemming of the bunches and spontaneous alcoholic fermentation in vitrified cement tanks, followed by bottling and decanting by hand without filtration. The liquid ages 24 months in concrete containers.
Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC BIO Emidio Pepe’s features
An intense ruby red colour. The perfume on the nose is of great complexity, capable of evolving in an impressive way with the passage of time: vinous and fresh when young, then it subsequently enriches its profile with references to graphite, earth and undergrowth. The compact and austere taste on the sip, is always driven by a beautiful acidity and a vital and sculpted tannin.
