Sku: 1885287

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and Syrah. Rich in aromas of mature fruit and hints of vanilla . On the palate, the wine is well-balanced, elegant with a good structure. Pèppoli is made with a view to being enjoyed fairly young, when all its fruity nuances are at their maximum.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 88 points (May 15 2014)
A bone-dry, austere style, whose cherry and strawberry flavors meet loam and leafy underbrush notes. Balanced toward the astringent side. For fans of the style. Best from 2016 through 2024. 11,000 cases imported. BS

Other text
Introduced in 1988 with the 1985 vintage, Pèppoli Chianti Classico DOCG is the archetypal modern Chianti Classico. In a departure from traditional Chiantis, Pèppoli combines the complexity and structure of a well-aged riserva with the fruity fragrance of a young wine. This style is made possible by a unique microclimate where east-northeast facing vineyards are planted in a small heat-retaining valley on mineral-rich rocky soils that are perfect for growing very fruity, lively Sangiovese. The wine further benefits from the use of better Sangiovese clones, severe grape bunch selection, delayed and cluster harvest when necessary. The wine is produced on Antinori's Pèppoli Estate, which extends over 100 hectares (247 acres), 55 (136 acres) of which are under vine .
