Winery Tasting Notes

Pèppoli 2017 is ruby red in color. On the nose Pèppoli features fruity notes of red and black fruit, cherries, strawberries and blackberries accompanied by delicate balsamic and herbal aromas and a spicy undertone. On the palate vibrant, savory with supple tannins that back up a persistent and pleasantly fresh finish.

Weather conditions for the 2017 vintage were mild both in winter and spring prompting early bud break. A sudden drop in temperatures during the last few days of April caused a slight reduction in overall yields however it didn’t have any detrimental effect on the quality of the grapes. Climatic conditions in summer were dry and sunny with temperatures higher than average. Rainy weather halfway through September restored the vegetative cycle of the vines boosting optimal grape ripening. Harvesting of Sangiovese grapes for Pèppoli began on September 20th.
