Emido Pepe Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo from Emidio Pepe bares little relation to most other wines of the same appellation. These wines are big and bold, filled with intense flavors of dried black cherries, licorice and wild herbs.
