2002 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
New!
Praise for the producer from Antonio Galloni in Vinous: "Bucking every trend and modern convention, the wines of Emidio Pepe represent one of the most singular expressions in winemaking today. That can't be too surprising given that Pepe himself is quite a personality. Initially somewhat stern, he seems to live in world long gone by. Pepe doesn't say much except that all his wines are excellent and that he only drinks his own. Fortunately the wines speak for themselves. In a time of increasing convergence these wines stand out for their unique style, art...

94 points Wine Advocate: "Pepe’s 2003 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is a bomb. Tar, leather, scorched earth and black fruit emerge from this dark, imposing Montepulciano. The wine comes together beautifully in the glass, as the aromas and flavors gain breadth and dimension. Despite the rich style, there is nothing excessive or over-ripe here, just exceptional balance of ripe fruit as captured by a traditional approach to vinification. A final blast of tar informs the long finish. Pepe fans will flip over the 2003, but readers who prefer subtlety over power wil...

97 points Wine Spectator: "Rustic and well-structured, offering an attractive mix of mature spice box, leather and forest floor notes, with a concentrated core of wild cherry and gamy blackberry fruit. Full-bodied, featuring a long, chewy finish of coffee and iron. " (09/2013) Jancis Robinson: "Roasted meats, dried fruits and leathery complexity on the nose and palate, delivering a sort of burgundy-bordeaux mash-up that is yet uniquely Italian. Profound and lengthy, with absolute balance still in place. (RH)" (10/2022) K&L Notes: Praise for the produ...

94 points Vinous: "Inky-purple. Captivating, broad brushstrokes of tar and licorice complicate aromas and flavors of dark plums, black cherry and cassis. Very clean, vibrant, dense Montepulciano d’Abruzzo that boasts lingering floral and mineral elements on the juicy finish. The best Italian release of Emidio Pepe’s Montepulciano d’Abruzzo in a long time (this wine is made from younger vines than the Old Vines selections available in the US). Really well done.

Monica Larner of Wine Advocate writes: "Cantina Zaccagnini is immediately recognizable thanks to the small grapevine cutting that is affixed with straw to each bottle. This is a nice decorative touch that gives the estate a distinct identity."

96 points Vinous: "Nearly impenetrable inky ruby color. Deep, brooding aromas of black cherry, violet, tar, shoe polish and botanical herbs. Sweet/sour flavors of black cherry, blueberry juicy, minerals and ink are complicated by a dusting of botanical herbs. This multilayered knockout of a wine finishes very bright and long, with repeating floral lift. Very clean and precise, and devoid of any funky animal aromas or flavors, it’s one of the best red wines from Pepe in years and a testament to the potential greatness of the Montepulciano grape. (ID)" (05...

92 points James Suckling: "A rich montepulciano here with lots of crushed black fruit and nicely placed oak. Full body and fine-grained tannins that pull a little, but don’t impede the progress of the fruit. It doesn’t feel like 15% alcohol, which is a credit to the winemaking here. Give it a year or two to integrate even better. Best from 2024." (11/2021) 92 points Vinous: "The 2019 Villamagna seduces from the first tilt of the glass with a mix of dusty black cherry, fresh mint and confectionary spice. There’s a pleasant inner sweetness that complemen...
