Iconic. Singular. Extraordinary. Artisan. Pioneering. Rare.  Emidio Pepe. Since 1997, the legendary estate has been headed by Emidio’s daughters Daniela and Sofia, with Daniela’s daughter Chiara de Iulis Pepe joining as the 5th generation. Vines are on hillsides in clay soils over solid limestone. Foot pressed hand harvested grapes, spontaneous fermentation with wild yeasts without the skins in glass lined cement tanks. Unfined, unfiltered. [2018 was a hot year, resulting in wine not falling within the rules of the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC. Rather than change the wine, the sisters used the more flexible Colli Aprutini IGT designation.] Dark garnet brick in colour, with aromas of cherry, rose petal, plum, dark chocolate. Silky layers of cherry, violet, red currant, blackberry and flinty/saline minerality are flanked by sleek Ceylon tea tannins and fresh acidity. Red currant, blueberry, dark chocolate and a whisper of clove linger on the lush finish. Radiant, elegant, sumptuous. 100% Montepulciano 13.5% Alcohol Emidio Pepe Rosato Colli Aprutini IGT 2018 #vinobiologico #vinvivant #viniabruzzesi #organicwine #vinobiodinamico #lowinterventionwine #biodynamicwine #vinnaturels #vininaturali #abruzzowine #vinoabruzzese #drinkbetterwine #vinbio #vinnature #footpressed #vinbiologique #montepulciano #winereview #vinonaturaleitaliano #italianwinelover #vinorosato #vinoitaliano #vinbiodynamique #instavino #winestagram #instawin #vin #vinnaturel el #emidiopepe #caravino
