Ar.Pe.Pe is the greatest producer in Valtellina. They have an excellent entry-point Rosso, but their single vineyard sleections are absolute pictures of class and ethereal elegance and tension. The acid profiles and careful mico-oxygenisation during elevage contribute to a wine that is drinkable on release but will also cellar for decades and decades. This 6-Pack contains 3 bottles of the fabulous entry point, Arpepe Rosso di Valtellina 2020Pale cherry red colour. Textured, fresh, lively, spicy cherry fruit with some subtly earthy undertones. Some floral, tar and spice notes on the nose. A really well-integrated, harmonious Nebbiolo, despite the edges and high acidity.

There is one of each of the Superiores, taken from their best parcels. Arpepe Valtellina Superiore 'Pettirosso' 2018 is a "picture of elegance" (93 Points, Decanter) blended from a few of their best parcels. There are 2 of their single vineyard offerings. Arpepe Valtellina Superiore 'Stella Retica' Sassella 2017 is "fragrant and loaded with finesse" (94 Points, Wine Enthusiast). Arpepe Valtellina Superiore 'Rocca de Piro' Grumello 2017 is "an impressive experience: (95 Points, The Wine ront) and is the most robust and powerful of their offerings.

Arpepe is famous for its immediacy but also it's longestivity. These will all drink now or cellar for minimum 5, 8, 15, 15 & 20 years respectively. We would recommend you drink the Rossos in the emmediate term and try your best to do some cellaring - every minute will help! STSWine
