Pèppoli 2020 is ruby red in color. On the nose, Pèppoli delivers intense notes of red fruit, especially cherries, currants and strawberries accompanied by floral undertones of violets and lavender with light, spicy hints of licorice. Its palate is defined by a soft entry, accompanied by lively sensations, and sustained by ripe tannins that lead to a fresh, savory finish.
Cherries, strawberries and ripe tomatoes pop off the nose of this Chianti Classico standby from Antinori, with more classic notes of wild fennel, soil and balsamic vinegar arriving after a moment. The palate is fresh and bright with more cherries, joined with figs and plums, before hints of dark chocolate. Dusty tannins highlight earthy undertones for a savory contrast.
