Emidio Pepe 1990 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo wineThis is Emidio Pepe with his grand daughter Chiara (fifth generation) holding a bottle of his1990 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. As you can see the outside of this bottle was in perfect condition and Emidio looks pretty good as well.

1990 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

The 1990 was perfumey with ripe cherries, some tar, and balsmatic, On the palate there are smooth tannins along with some raisins.It finishes with balanced tannins and acidity leaving a perfumey finish It is showing its maturity in a elegant fashion as some high quality Barolo can show.

1997 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

1997 was a rainy year. Therefore this is a great wine but its longevity is not typical of the other wines Emidio Pepe and his wineswith a good 25 years of great drinking. This 1997 was poured from a perfect condition magnum. The wine was showing more age than the 1990. There was more raisins and balsmatic characteristics with the dried fruits and soft forest floor. The tannins were gentle and melting away in the finish. This wine is at it peak of drinking but with more years of enjoyment.

2010 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 

The wine is floral with violets, ripe cherries with some earthiness. On the palate there are sweet cherries with some charred barrel notes and elegant tannins.The finish is long and floral with its sweet cherries.

The wines may appear to be pricey for wines of Montpulciano d’Abruzzo but they are worth it. The quality and ageability of these wines put them in the ageing ability and class of Brunello and Barolo.
