Tenuta Cavalier Pepe
Milena Pepe was born and raised in Belgium, but after studying marketing in Brussels and further training in viticulture and oenology in Provence and Burgundy, she moved to the region of Irpinia, in Campania, where her paternal family has its roots. Her father Angelo, a well-known restaurateur in the capital, entrusted her with the management of the family estate Tenuta Cavalier Pepe: 60 hectares of vines (for approximately 400,000 bottles of wine produced annually) and 12 hectares of olive trees. Focusing on indigenous grape varieties such as Greco di Tufo, Fiano di Avelino and Aglianico, Tenuta Cavalier Pepe produces an extremely wide range of wines from which Popsss has selected his favourites.
The grapes, full of sugar, are harvested in November and immediately pressed. Vinification and maturation are carried out in oak barrels.
Intense straw yellow colour.
Aromas of honey, ripe apricot and dried fruit.
Round in the mouth, but with a nice freshness.
A blue cheese or a dessert.
