Trebbiano d'Abruzzo 2013

It smashed away all the rivals at least by miles
It definitely occupies a sweet spot with me, but onestly the liveliness, vibrancy, enjoyment and, least but not last at all, the lenght of the aftertaste together with its cleanness they justify its reputation and fullfil anyone expectation

Ripe cherry fruit, dark and Tavel-like. Nice for the style but a little heavy-handed for my taste. — 9 days ago

Emidio Pepe

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2010

The 2010 Emidio Pepe was like a young version of the 2001. Dark cherries, tar, spice. The finish is eternal. No doubt it would likewise age forever. — 13 days ago

A bit more reduction than I remember. Amazing acidity and tension, deep aromatics and flavors for the pale color. Dense but weightless. Beautiful, again — 21 days ago

Powerful but just a bit clunky. Bordering on tropical fruit but nicely textured and grippy with decent acid. — 9 days ago

Colli Aprutini Pecorino 2015

The 2015 Pecorino from Emidio Pepe is delicious, herbal and white fruit with minerality that expresses itself on the long finish. That salinity reminded me of Pecorino, the cheese, appropriately enough!! — 13 days ago
