Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Emidio Pepe 2010, natural wine from Abruzzo, 100% Montepulciano, superb vintage of Rare Italian drop of God, worth every penny! The 2010 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo from Emidio Pepe was one of their finest vintages. Natural, low sulphur and iconic. Emidio Pepe reds are something akin to fine Burgundy with weight. They are complex, earthy, yet elegant and fresh. Really outstanding, drink with only with the most finely prepared meat dishes you can produce from your kitchen. Some of the vintage has been returned to barrels for further ageing and will be declared as 'Riserva'. The few bottles of 2010 are therefore pretty pricey but are without doubt great for cellaring.


The great wines of Emidio Pepe have become iconic on the international market; older vintages sell for high prices and are highly sort after. You might say rightly so when you consider the labour of love that has gone into every bottle. The organic grapes are handpicked, sorted and every one pressed by foot, a practice that is very rare nowadays but still produces the softest pressing. The must is then fermented with natural yeast in large cement tanks and aged in cement for 2 years, settling naturally without the addition of sulphur. They are then bottled and sent for ageing in the cellar. They store an incredible 40 vintages in their stunning cellar just outside Torano Nuovo in northern Abruzzo not far from the Marche border. When a bottle is sold, it is lovingly decanted into a fresh bottle by hand (hence there is no need for fining nor filtration), corked by hand and then labelled by hand! Only very rarely is any sulphur used in the production of Pepe wines and yet such is the perfection of natural balance that they age for decades.
