Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2000


SKU 04239


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. Give the wines plenty of air, including the old ones. It is an amazing drinking experience!

Wine AdvocateThe 2000 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, from a much warmer vintage, is a big, powerful wine packed with dark fruit, earth and game notes. It doesn't have the level of finesse and balance of the 2001 and its less lively color along with its evolving flavors suggest it will reach maturity sooner, although for this producer that is measured in relative terms. 90/Anticipated maturity: after 2010.

Wine SpectatorBright and floral, with plenty of crushed berry aromas. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a fresh finish. Delightful. Drink now. 4,000 cases made.
