All about making whisky
Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2009 is a complex, rich, rounded wine. Elegant yet powerful, earthy and fresh, it pairs perfectly with any meat dish. However, it needs to breathe in the glass for a while before it can fully express itself.
Production: 40,000 bottles Type of soil: clay Vine training: chapiteau Average age of vines: 28-30 years Vine density: 900 per hectare Harvests: hand-picked Vinification: destemmed by hand into wooden vats. Fermentation in 22 to 30 hectolitre glass-lined concrete vats, with no added yeast or sulphur, and no pumping-over.
Located in Torano, Emido Pepe’s small 8-hectare vineyard is farmed entirely biodynamically. The family tradition has been passed from father to son... and daughters, as Sofia and Daniela Pepe are now also involved in running the property. Picked by hand, the grapes are then crushed by foot. The juice is fermented by the naturally present yeasts, nothing is added, and there is no filtration. The wines are often aged for a long period in the bottle before being released on to the market.
Having developed in the boom years after the Second World War, conventional agriculture is based on notions of yield. Largely applied in the world of wine-growing, this approach began to be challenged in the early 1990s. Leading the revolt were a handful of grape growers and wine producers who denounced the over-use of pesticides, fungicides and yeasts that have been cultured in laboratories. This trend of moving towards natural methods, that the main wine producers are now also trying to develop, has resulted in the creation of many types of certification; among the strictest is Demeter; there are also various groups and associations in France and across the Alps such as Renaissance AOC and Triple A.
