Pepe’s unique vinification methods ensure a freshness and vibrancy I’ve rarely seen in older wines. The wine is put into bottles directly from neutral fermentation vats, unfined, unfiltered, and unsulphered. They’re then aged in the cellar until Pepe deems to release them, and then they’re decanted by hand as the only (natural) filtration this wine sees. It takes 13 decanted bottles to make each final case, and Emidio’s mother at one point was the only person that did the job. In a recent 40 year vertical tasting I attended (going back to 1964, when Emidio started making wine this way), the ’75 was the unanimous favorite. Simply stunning. SH
Not the Riserva, but no slouch, this wine is still alive and drinking. It may even show a bit more fruit that the '67 Riservas. With proper handling (time to rest, and proper decanting) this is a real treat.
A special bottling: in translation the label reads: This wine comes from a part of the 1500 bottles bottled at the Cantina, and was selected in the spring of 1980 by the Master tasters of the Order of the Knights of the Truffle and the Wines of Alba" The Rinaldi Barolo 1971 is a great bottle of wine, so this too should be very special.
