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.

Vintage 2015 | a lot to discover. Elegance. Pepper, but above all a fascinating minerality. Interesting. Great balance.

Strange petrol nose, with preserved Meyer lemon and but fascinating minerality. Dying to try this again.

The people’s champ - funky and savory on the nose but with a clean crisp almost salty finish, perfect with anchovies in olive oil. Can’t wait to drink again without a party of 4. #emidiopepe

I loved this. Lemon, some funk, and minerality.

The conundrum of supreme freshness meets aged brilliance. Orange blossom and lemon, petrol and wax. Oily as fuck. Oxidative. Carmelized lemon peel. Tight acid. Reminds me of my favorite aged wines but not as old. Fruit stripe gum. This is bottle 1 of 2 for us. This can prob age a long while longer. Will save bottle 2 for a while...

Needs no introduction, but needs the right temperature and sometime in the glass for the complexity of flinty stone fruits and refreshing acidity with mind blowing persistence to shine through.

Too young I think or probably I didn’t give it enough time to breath and opens up. Still very interesting wine tho...
