Wine Description

The 2017 Pèppoli is ruby red in color. On the nose are fruity notes of red and black fruit, cherries, strawberries and blackberries accompanied by delicate balsamic and herbal aromas and a spicy undertone. The palate is vibrant and savory with supple tannins that back up a persistent and pleasantly fresh finish.

Food Pairings

Tomato-based pasta dishes, veal Milanese, rack of lamb, grilled vegetables
