This world-class red wine from Emidio Pepe is the benchmark bottle for Montepulciano produced wordlwide. Expect a rich (yet not overripe by any means), multidimensional wine that seriously overdelivers. Major wine publications have anticipated that this wine will reach its peak drinking window from 2013-2028 – meaning now’s the time to jump!
Organic and biodynamic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, no fining/filtering and no added sulfites.
This is Rougeot’s most structured, powerhouse wine that will age gracefully for decades. This wine spent 18 months in barrel (35% new). Produced using organic/biodynamic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, no added sulfur, and bottled unfined / unfiltered.
Volnay ‘Les Santenots’ is technically located in the village of Meursault, though vignerons discovered long ago that there is a larger demand for Volnay than Meursault Rouge and wisely arranged to label reds from their northernmost vineyards as Volnay.
These wines from ARPEPE are among the most impressive I tasted. From top to bottom, the wines are deserving of serious attention. The super-traditional style will leave lovers of translucent Nebbiolo weak at the knees…
Drink from 2020–2027 & decant 30 minutes to 1 hour before consuming.
This world class Brunello comes from one of the earliest estates in Montalcino – founded when there were fewer than 20 estates (there are now well over 200). The wines are staunchly traditional, long macerations followed by at least three years in cask.
