Pèppoli 2018 is ruby red in color. On the nose, Pèppoli has intense notes of red fruit; cherries and strawberries that are well balanced with floral undertones of dog rose. Delicate hints of spices, aromatic herbs and notes of light toasting complete its bouquet. On the palate it's vibrant, fresh with supple tannins and a finish that brings back aromatic notes perceived on the nose.

A direct, real Chianti Classico with plum and sour-cherry character, as well as some tangy citrus. It’s medium-bodied with lovely fruit and a fresh finish. Just a hint of firmness at the end. Drink now.

Bright and savory, this opens with aromas of wild red berry, blue flower and a whiff of wet earth. The linear palate offers juicy morello cherry, star anise and a hint of white pepper alongside fresh acidity and smooth tannins. Drink through 2023.

This is reticent in aroma and flavor, featuring a kernel of cherry buried in the bitter almond, earth and iron notes. A tobacco element creeps in on the aftertaste. Solid, but needs a year to come out of its shell. Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2021 through 2028.

The 2017 Chianti Classico Pèppoli withstands the heat of the vintage relatively unscathed, with bright berry fruit, blue flower, potting soil and wild herb. The wine offers good freshness, an easy-drinking style and the wild cherry flavors to pair with a heaping burger and fries.
