Vinification: The grapes, picked variety by variety, were destemmed and pressed and then went into stainless fermentation tanks. The fermentation was carried out at temperatures between 79° and 82° Fahrenheit (26°-28° centigrade) to fully bring out varietal character and conserve fruity and flora notes. The period of skin contact was approximately 10 days for the Sangiovese, 15 days for the Merlot and Syrah, and the extraction techniques were aimed at the achievement of soft and supple tannins. At the end of the malolactic fermentation, which terminated by the end of winter for all the different grape varieties, the wine was assembled and went into Slavonian oak casks, where it aged for approximately nine months. The wine was bottled in November of 2016.
Historical data: Pèppoli was first marketed in 1988 with the initial vintage, the 1985, and represents a wine which is both complex and well structured but with much fruit and aromatic fragrance as well. It is produced at the estate of the same name, and since the year 2013 a part of the crop is fermented at the Antinori Chianti Classico cellars at Bargino.
Eyes: Ruby red in color with purple highlights.
Nose: the wine shows intensely fruity notes of cherries and red currants on the nose which fuse very well with the typical sensations of violets which characterize Chianti Classico. Very delicate and quite well integrated the smoky sensations created by the oak aging.
Palate: savory with a tasty vein of acidity together with silky and polished tannins.
Blend: Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah
James Suckling (2015 Vintage) says
Plenty of ripe fruit with dried strawberry and cherry character. Hints of rose petal. Full body, round and velvety textured with a long and flavorful finish. Dusty tannins. Seriously intense.
