Emido Pepe Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2001
The best Montepulciano grapes of the general harvest in mid-October are isolated for special treatment. A soft pressing precedes a cool, long fermentation. Then the wine is aged in Slavonian oak casks for three months. After filtration there is additional aging in the bottle for a month or more. The wine is then systematically checked and tasted to ascertain the optimum sales release date. Food Affiliations: Rich pasta dishes, especially meat sauces or spicy sauces. Sharp cheeses, such as pecorino. Hamburgers, poultry including turkey.
