Product notes

The Pèppoli vineyards produce a Chianti Classico that is a blend made from Sangiovese grapes and complementary varieties; Pèppoli is recognized and appreciated for the full expression of its fruit. A wine that represents the Chianti Classico territory and its historic grape variety with typical floral and fruity aromas. Pèppoli was first produced in 1985 and since 2013 part of the harvest undergoes vinification at the Antinori nel Chianti Classico cellars.

Production notes

Each grape variety was harvested separately, destemmed, gently crushed and transferred into stainless steel tanks. Alcoholic fermentation took place at a controlled temperature between 26 and 28 °C. Once malolactic fermentation was completed, the wine was blended and transferred into barrels. Pèppoli aged in large Slavonian oak barrels for approximately 9 months and a small percentage was aged in stainless steel vats.

Tasting notes

Pèppoli 2018 is ruby red in color. On the nose, Pèppoli has intense notes of red fruit; cherries and strawberries that are well balanced with floral undertones of dog rose. Delicate hints of spices, aromatic herbs and notes of light toasting complete its bouquet. On the palate it’s vibrant, fresh with supple tannins and a finish that brings back aromatic notes perceived on the nose.
