Ar.Pe.Pe - Valtellina Superiore Sassella Stella Reticia 2015
Region: Valtellina / Lombardia
Few, perhaps very few other wineries in Italy, identify so strongly with a place and a grape variety as happens with the Ar.pe.pe winery with the lands of Valtellina and with the vine variety of Nebbiolo. A virtuous relationship, which leads to wines of extraordinary elegance and expressiveness, bright in telling both the varietal and that territory so difficult to work, steep and steep, where every plant must literally conquer every ray of sunshine.
Unique wines, for their great longevity. Each "Valtellina" wines leaves hardly before six or seven years after the harvest. The name of the Ar.pe.pe company derives from Arturo Pelizzatti Perego who in 1984, thanks to the experience gained in the company of his father and grandfather, decided to start a new wine project, with the aim of enhancing the maximum the potential of a unique terroir such as that of Valtellina.
Stella Retica "is an elegant expression of Valtellina Superiore on the Sassella subzone; a single vineyard from terraced vineyards which aged for 24 months in oak and chestnut barrels. Clear and woody aromas of berries, violets and noble woods, full-bodied, fresh, with elegant and subtle tannins.
