Pèppoli was first marketed in 1988 with the presentation of the 1985 vintage, a wine which represented the combination of complexity and structure and fruit and full fragrance as well. The style was made possible by a special microclimate. The vines are planted in a particularly favorable valley with soils rich in minerals, ideal for the cultivation of a savory Sangiovese bursting with fruit. The Pèppoli estate, situated in the heart of Chianti Classico, consists of 250 acres (100 hectares), 125 of which are planted to vines.

Winery Tasting Notes
Ruby red in colour.
The 2012 Pèppoli is characterized by notes of cherries and raspberries, and the aromatic profile is completed by nuances of violets and vanilla.
On the palate, the wine is tasty and balanced, lively in its acidity, a characteristic of Sangiovese-based wines. The fruity notes and the spices of the oak dominate the finish and aftertaste. The wine is soft in its tannins and long and lingering on the finish.
