ARPEPE - 'Rocce Rosse Riserva' Valtellina Superiore Sassella 2013


AREPEP is a family of winegrowers and, for over 150 years, has been passionately devoted to the cultivation of Nebbiolo. This is a rare grape variety that, over the centuries, has adapted to the Valtellina, a land like no other, where everything is still done by hand.

ARPEP is convinced that the outstanding qualities of Nebbiolo from the Alps means it is more than worthy of its place of honor on the international market of fine wines. Without this worldwide acknowledgement, this age-old activity would simply not be economically sustainable for it rejects any idea of modern mass-production. 

In a glass of Valtellina Superiore Sassella Riserva Rocce Rosse DOCG you can relish the flavor of a root that challenge the granite with its elegance and sincerity, while a gentle breeze rises up from Lake Como and refreshes the valley.

All Piemonte and Burgundy aficionados that haven't tasted Valtellina wines should not pass on this producer and region.
