K&L Notes

Established in 1984 for Arturo Pelizzatti Perego, and now run by Arturo's children Isabella, Emanuele and Guido, ArPePe makes rare wines that are a point of reference for the unique Valtellina terroir, where the famed Nebbiolo grape goes by the name Chiavennasca. As New York Times wine writer Eric Asimov noted not long ago, "...No Italian-accented wine list can be considered in vogue these days without at least one of the excellent Valtellinas from ArPePe..." (3/2014) This offering comes from the Sassella zone and is raised in a combination of stainless and 50hl oak barrels. From the winery: "This Riserva offers the excitement of an incorruptible youth that time cannot diminish. Long aging adds complexity without changing the typical freshness. Immediately fulfilling to the nose with an elegant bouquet of roses, cherry and cranberry, its garnet colour - of rare brightness - captures you immediately. But it's the fresh taste, rich and persistent, which conquers the enthusiast from the very first sip. Thanks to its versatile young character it can pair well with all regional cuisine from Lombardy. To be served in large glasses at 15°C."
