About Trebbiano: Trebbiano is an ancient grape variety from Abruzzo. It is an elegant and refined wine with great aging potential. Its beautiful acidity, together with the aromatic balance, makes it a fine wine with complexity at the same time. The proximity to the Gran Sasso Mountain guarantees big temperature differences between night and day, which encourages the development of the flavors. The proximity to the Adriatic Sea sea breezes provides an important mineral tone and a beautiful sapidity to the Emidio Pepe Trebbiano.

Winemaking Notes: Harvest is done by hand with strict grape selection; they pick in different phases to select bunches of grapes according to their ripening. Grapes are crushed in a wooden vat by foot. No additives or sulfites are added, and the must undergoes natural, indigenous yeast fermentation in glass-lined cement vats. After fermentation, the wine ages for roughly six months prior to being bottled. The Trebbiano is bottled by hand without filtering. Rosa Pepe, the family matriarch, decants and rebottles every single bottle in their cellars to take out the deposits which have formed naturally during the aging process.

    Rich and complex confit lemons, white spices, generous salinity and plenty of white flowers accompanied by an almost balsamic character. Dry and elegant with plenty of citrus notes, the palate has hints of dried mushrooms and a stony minerality on the finish.

    A sweetly seductive mix of baked apples, peaches and candied lemon combines with hints of chamomile as the 2017 Trebbiano d'Abruzzo Vecchie Vigne comes to life in the glass. This is a total pleasure on the palate: silky and round with ripe orchard fruits and a staining of minerality that evolves toward the close. It finishes spicy yet fresh with a reverberation of residual acids and hints of ginger under an air of minty herbs. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off of this warm vintage beauty.
