Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Pepe 2018, biodynamic wine, 50 year old vines, Iconic red wine from Abruzzo. We can’t think of the superlatives to describe this Iconic red. The new vintages now show the badge indicating that these wines come from the old vines at the estate. This is to distinguish it from the younger vine selection generally only found in Italy and also about a third of the price. These are the bottles to age and age majestically they will. The 2018 vintage had a spring characterized by regular changes of warm sunlight and pouring rain. This pushed the vegetation until the summer. Summer temperatures were particularly high and it was dry for the most part. Fortunately there were two days of rain in mid August that gave the plants a chance to breathe again. There was a very careful selection at the harvest. By doing this, they ensured great quality although with a diminished quantity. The 2018 is set to be a great vintage, although the quantity is quite low. Buy Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Pepe 2018 now and cellar for 8-10 for it to show at its best.
