2002 Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Superiore Sassella Riserva 'rocce Rosse'
"It’s not about structure or concentration: it’s about minerality and finesse. Ours is a patrimony of elegance." -Emmanuel Pelizzatti
"Ar.Pe.Pe. is one of the best traditional wineries from the mountain region of Valtellina near the Swiss border where the nebbiolo grape attains the finesse and precision of pinot noir. These steep, south facing mountain vineyards produce beautifully restrained styles of nebbiolo that are aged in old chestnut barrels and released when the wines are ready to drink." - Importer
