Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d`Abruzzo 2003,  (WA94) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d`Abruzzo

Vintage: 2003
Region: Italy
Appellation: Montepulciano d`Abruzzo

WA94
Rated 94 points by Robert Parker`s 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 will want to cellar this for a few years to allow for some of the baby fat to melt away. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2028.` -- Antonio Galloni in Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate.Additional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `Emidio Pepe is one of Abruzzo`s reference-point producers. These traditionally made wines can show some rough edges when they are young, but they rarely disappoint when given an opportunity to mature in the cellar.`
