Description

History

The Pepe family is a family historically linked to the Irpinia area, which for many generations has invested and is committed to enhancing the area through the production of wines. Angelo Pepe worked hard to create today’s reality, creating the Tenuta Cavalier Pepe, which today is a cellar, winery, restaurant and bed & breakfast. The name Cavalier Pepe derives from the fact that the then President of the Republic Oscar Luigi Scalfaro in 1998 appointed Angelo Pepe “Cavaliere della Repubblica” for the work merits demonstrated in the field. Today the company covers about 60 hectares of land and 11 hectares of olive groves; the cultivated varieties are mainly the historical ones such as Aglianico, Fiano, Greco, Falanghina and Coda di Volpe. The lands are within 3 DOCGs, Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Taurasi.

Grapes used

Greco 100%

Production method

The grapes are harvested manually and are immediately transported to the cellar, where they are selected again. The volcanic and calcareous residues of which the soil on which the vineyards are located are also important for the final result of the wine. We proceed to a cold decantation of the must, for a natural clarification of the wine. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats and the wine remains on the fine lees for a few months to complete the refinement. It follows a few months in the bottle before being put on the market.

Tasting notes

At sight the wine has an intense straw yellow color with golden hues. The nose perceives sensations of ripe fruit such as yellow peach, pear and apple with citrus notes such as orange and grapefruit. Intense minerality and notes of wild herbs and daisies. On the palate it is rich, full-bodied and balanced between acidity and minerality. Long persistence on the palate where the mineral and savory note is reconfirmed.

Possible combinations

Greco di tufo “Nestor” is perfect to accompany dishes with a good structure and flavour, as it has body and minerality. Excellent with main courses of white meat and/or baked or grilled fish. We also see it very well with tasty and medium-aged cheeses.
