Description

History

The Pepe family is a family historically linked to the territory of Irpinia, which for many generations has invested and committed itself to enhancing the territory through the production of wines. Angelo Pepe worked hard to create today’s reality, creating Tenuta Cavalier Pepe, which today is a winery, 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 “Knight of the Republic” for the work merits demonstrated in the field. Today the company extends over approximately 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 land is within 3 DOCGs, Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Taurasi.

Grapes used

Greek 100%

Production method

The grapes are harvested manually and are immediately transported to the cellar, where they are selected again. Also important for the final result of the wine are the volcanic and calcareous residues that make up the soil on which the vineyards stand. We proceed with a cold decantation of the free-run 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 actually being put on the market.

Alcohol content

12.5%

Tasting notes

At sight the wine has an intense straw yellow color with golden hues. On the nose there are sensations of ripe fruit such as yellow peach, pear and apple with notes of citrus fruits 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 tuff “Nestor” is perfect for accompanying dishes with good structure and flavour, as it has body and minerality. Excellent with second courses of white meat and/or baked or grilled fish. We also see it very well with tasty and medium-aged cheeses.
