EMIDIO PEPE 2005 MONTEPULCIANO D'ABRUZZO

THE WINE ADVOCATE

93 POINTS

Fine-grained tannins frame this supple red, with ripe flavors of plum sauce, black cherry coulis and red licorice, accented by savory notes of smoky sous-bois, seared mushroom and spice box. Harmonious, presenting a light juiciness to the acidity that keeps this going on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 2,500 cases made. –AN

JOHN GILMAN - VIEW FROM THE CELLAR

May/Jun 2014, Issue #51, Emidio Pepe- Montepulciano’s Maestro Celebrates His Fiftieth Harvest, 5/1/2014 94+ points (Montepulciano d’Abruzzo- Emidio Pepe)
The 2005 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano is a great vintage of this wine in the making, as it soars from the glass in a youthful blaze of black cherries, bitter chocolate, new leather, gentle notes of tariness, lovely botanical tones (like a fine aperitivo) and a fine base of dark soil tones. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and still quite primary, with a great core of sappy black fruit, ripe, beautifully-integrated tannins, fine focus and a very long, youthful and superb finish. All this beauty needs is time in the cellar to fully blossom, and it is likely to give the exceptional 2010 vintage a run for its money over the coming three or four decades! (Drink between 2023-2075
