Emidio Pepe founded his winery in 1964, after working alongside his father and his grandfather which already back in 1889 were making wine at Casa Pepe. Before anyone else, he strongly believed in the great ageing potential of Trebbiano and Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and he dedicated all his energies to those two indigenous grape varietals, proving their incredible potential and showing it to the entire world.
There’s a woodsy, herbal nature to the bouquet of the Pecorino; musky dried apricots and hints of confectionery spice provide lovely contrast. Its soft textures soothe as a reverberation of tension mounts through a mix of zesty acids, green citrus and a twang of sour melon. This Pecorino leaves a primary concentration upon the palate, a staining of lime and a caking of saline intensity, while finishing with persistence.
