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

100% Aglianico

Production method

The harvest takes place around mid-October and manually in boxes. Upon arrival in the cellar the grapes are pressed whole. We proceed to a cold decantation of the must, for a natural clarification of the wine. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a low temperature 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.

Alcohol content

13.5%

Tasting notes

At sight the wine has an intense straw yellow color, with greenish and gold reflections. On the nose notes of ripe and pulpy red fruit, with slightly herbaceous and balsamic hints with notes of spices such as cloves and black pepper.

Possible combinations

Cavalier Pepe’s Aglianico is perfect as an accompaniment to cured meats and cheeses, even medium-aged ones, first courses with tomato sauce and red and white meat dishes.
