Lot #428. Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 1994

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 94 JG.
"I very much like the 1994 Montepulciano from Emidio Pepe, which hails from a vintage with a precocious spring, but a cooler fin de saison and which is very successful for the estate’s Montepulciano. The wine offers up a very fine aromatic constellation of cherries, orange peel, botanicals, dark soil tones, red curry, a dollop of tariness and a bit of saddle leather in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and now nicely transparent, with a fine core, tangy acids, still a fair bit of firm tannins and a very long, focused and very well-balanced finish. This is approachable today, but I would be inclined to still give it another four or five years in the cellar for the tannins to more fully fade away. Really an outstanding wine from a more challenging vintage." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, May/Jun 2014, Issue #51
