Overview

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.
