Emidio Pepe

Trebbiano d'Abruzzo 2015

Very good
I hadn't had the trebbiano from Pepe for a looong time and the feeling is still similar
It needs time to open up
When young the palate is better than the nose
It is long and enjoyable
What has changed in time is unfortunately the price and i wondered if that is due to the market or because it has been harder to source or work the grapes
I used to pay it less than 15 euros back in Italy and I understand that time flies, but here in Melbourne this is on the shelf for 140 dollars.
I thank
@Giulio Bignozzi for sharing this with me, but I struggle to realise the dynamics about its pricing..or maybe I just don't want to.
For 30 or 40 euros I would be happy to buy and drink this, but for 140 dollars I would pick elsewhere perhaps
It is also a natural wine if I remember well and I reckon there should be a bit of ethic behind that too. Still a very good wine nonetheless, but i couldn't keep the critic for myself.

Tio Pepe Dos Palmas Jerez Palomino Fino

Tio Pepe Dos Palmas, a selection of only two barrels that has been aged 8 year (an abnormally long time under the flor) Get the best Jamon Iberico you can get your hands on, sit back and enjoy the ride
It opens up like a fino on steroids, bruised apples, hay, almonds, sour dough and dusty chalk, But very soon you can hint a slight oxidative note of walnuts everything encapsuled in a salty and fresh sea breeze. Bone dry on the palate with a highly concentrated intensity and a long balanced finish. In my opinion the best of the Bodegas Palma range.

Fren Taurasi Aglianico 2016

S T
9.3

Smells of black fruit, plum, and a whiff of smoke. Bold and dry, lingering velvet on the palate. Fruitier than expected (a good thing). Medium tannins. Great overall, and a good purchase @ $31 CAD. — 14 days ago

Emidio Pepe

Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo Montepulciano 2014

First day it was better on the nose than in the mouth, but still pleasant and delivering the Emidio pepe basics of funk and fruit. The second day it shined, where it was much more full and refined. — 17 days ago

Nicht zu sauer, nicht zu suess, aber kraeftiger Geschmack. Passt auch zu Fleisch statt nur Fisch. Getrunken bei Cortile Pepe in Cefalu — 2 months ago
