Antonio Galloni writes:  The 2021 Chianti Classico Pèppoli is one of my favorite wines in the Antinori range. Crushed flowers, mint, orange peel and bright red-toned fruit are wonderfully alive. Pèppoli is not a huge wine, but it surely delivers the goods and is also a very good Chianti Classico with which to understand this young vintage.  - Vinous 90

James Suckling writes:  A fresh and bright Chianti Classico with energy and focus. Very typical for the appellation. Medium body. Crisp. Refreshing. Drink now.  - James Suckling 92

Bruce Sanderson writes:  A vibrant, elegant red, despite the firm tannins. Reveals prevailing floral, cherry, strawberry and iron flavors as this plays out on the lingering finish. Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. Drink now through 2027.   - Wine Spectator 90

Winemaker Notes

Pèppoli 2021 is ruby red in color with purplish highlights. On the nose, fresh citrusy notes of bitter oranges arise together with fruity hints of plums. The delicate bouquet is completed with floral notes of hyacinth blossoms and spicy hints of unsweetened cocoa powder. A mouth filling entry on the palate is sustained by lively freshness, together with supple tannins, leads to a flavorful and pleasant finish.

 

The Pèppoli vineyards produce a Chianti Classico that is a blend made from Sangiovese grapes and complementary varieties; Peppoli is recognized and appreciated for the full expression of its fruit. A wine that represents the Chianti Classico territory and its historic grape variety with typical floral and fruity aromas.

Pèppoli 2022 is a bright ruby red color. The nose offers fresh impressions of red fruit, especially currants, strawberries, pomegranates, and hints of watermelon. Delicate floral aromas of dog rose, hibiscus and undertones of caramel complete the aromatic bouquet. Entry on the palate is mouth filling and savory, and is followed by fresh lively sensations with soft, supple tannins. Pèppoli 2022 closes with a full-flavored vibrant finish.

"The 2022 Chianti Classico Peppoli is a youthful ruby magenta, and is highly expressive with lively aromas of grenadine, tangerine, fresh flowers, and fresh oregano. This carries seamlessly to the palate keeping all the buoyant vibrancy and fruit through a well-balanced and polished finish. It has fine tannins, and a flourish of toasted smoke cedar spice, with notes of dusty earth and a bit of iron rich gamy feel."
