2005 Trebbiano D'Abruzzo Emidio Pepe 

In the country side of Abruzzo in a small town called Torano is situated a family vineyard with 15 hectares around 400 meter above sea level. The owner of this small grower is Emidio Pepe with the collaboration of his daughters producing a really nice wine with organic methods also applying some byodinamic principle.
It is all based in the perfect balance between time and nature with the collaboration of the "contadino" craftsmen.
The soil is  predominately clay and mixed with calcareous, the system training is called Tendone D'Abruzzo - see the picture below:
Last week i tasted one of his Trebbiano D'Abruzzo from 05 - a very gold color flashing amber, nuttiness, candy aroma, chamomile and hint of Corbezzolo Honey was present on my nose.. The alcohol was warm with the potential expression of a hot vintage, smoothness  and complexity refined my palate. There were just a bit of volatile, but was hidden from the smokiness i found on my palate. Was a great white wine with 8 years on the shoulder. A Macon from center Italy.
