Emidio Pepe Olive Oil , 500ml, biodynamic olive oil.  It is difficult to imagine the Abruzzo hills without tufts of olive trees scattered in an orderly manner on the slopes. Olive trees have always been used in Abruzzo to line each parcel of vines, like the 700 trees, which hug their vineyards, contributing to a biodiversity faithful to the traditions of the region.  They only grow native Abruzzese varieties (Frantoio, Leccino, Tortiglione, Dritta e Pendolino) which are harvested manually and cold pressed in a nearby olive mill.  The harvest is brought to the press on the same day to maintain the level of acidity and preserve the quality of the fruit. Emidio Pepe Olive Oil is an unfiltered Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which creates a slight sediment on the bottom of the bottle.  This is a sign of the purity and quality.

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. Emidio Pepe wines 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), Emidio Pepe wines are all 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.
