K&L Notes

Established in 1984 by 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 Nebbiobo grape goes by the name Chiavennasca. New York Times wine writer Eric Asimov recently noted, "...no Italian-accented wine list can be considered in vogue these days without at least one of the excellent Valtellinas from ArPePe..." (03/2014) This particular offering comes from the Grumello zone of the Valtellina Superiore DOCG and is made in a combination of stainless steel in 50hl barrels. Deftly intermingling the high-toned red fruit and rose petals aromas that characterize Nebbiolo with notes of leather, forest floor and tobacco. In the mouth, the wine is fresh and well balanced, with Nebbiolo's characteristic tannins perfectly interwoven with acidity, fruit and spice. Incredible.
