Tannins

Cherry liqueur, truffles, cigar box crushed roses, blood orange peel and dried sage open the senses. Texture is juicy and velvety with a plush mineral core. The tannins are well integrated at this stage in its evolution and are well rounded and complex leaving behind a smoky, earthy and slightly spicy finish. The finish is extremely long. 30-45 minute decant recommended.

With roots dating back to 1860 and tucked in between the Orobic and Retic Alps just south of the Italian-Swiss border, you’ll find the terraced vineyards of ARPEPE. At the helm of this storied estate, located in the Grumello subzone of Valtellina in Lombardy, is the fifth generation of the Pelizzatti Perego family. After reacquiring vineyards that had been rented out in 1984 and reclaiming their cellar in Grumello, ArPePe have quietly been crafting masterful wines. Today, ARPEPE is widely recognized as the single best producer in the appellation (as well as a benchmark producer of Nebbiolo in general).
