Stella Retica Sassella Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2015

Popped and poured into hotel room glasses. Pours a very light ruby color with a transparent core; medium viscosity. On the nose, this is quite expressive with dark cherry, bruised strawberry, roses, some tar…a touch of VA. On the palate, equally impressive with pure, ripe red fruit, alpine herbs, earth and a rocky minerality. Stiff tannin and medium+ acid. Long finish. A wine with loads of character. Fantastic. — 24 days ago

Riserva Sant' Antonio Grumello Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2013

Soulful. Ethereal cherry fruit with softening tannic grip, acid structure, and a host of secondary notes. In a nice spot if a bit muted. Hold if you only have a couple. If you’re like me and priced out of GC burg this scratches that itch nicely. — a month ago

Nose is cherry and library dust.

Palate is cherry. Penetrating. So bright. Good elegant spice.

Il Pettirosso Terrazze Retiche di Sondrio Nebbiolo 2017

I love 2017 in Valtelinna. It’s like how Barolo was 30-50 years ago. A throwback vintage. Gorgeous and nimble nose of red fruits, tobacco leaf, gorgeous rose florals and stunning elegance. What an elegant nose. So pure. so lithe. so ethereal and pretty. Mid to early season cherries are the main fruit aromas here. So stunning. Palate is so juicy, lithe and elegant. My goodness this is such a pretty wine. Cleansing minerality and such freshness. Lithe and nimble tannins and such stunning purity. They masterfully handled this vintage. I’ll be back as it airs as this wine has 9 lives it changes so much. Long finish, nimble tannins and stunning fruit clarity. As this airs it gets even more fresh. The freshness here is just remarkable. — 2 months ago

Riserva Rocca de Piro Grumello Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2017

Stunning nose. I adore 17 at Ar Pe Pe. So elegant and finesse driven with stunning aromas. Just in your face soppy cherries, confectionery cherries and vivid roses, tar and tobacco on a bed of minerality. This is so expressive. Juicy and sweet and just so transparent and complex. Finely grained tannins and lovely freshness and purity. Terrific opulence and inner mouth aromas. Ripe and crunchy tannins and a silky texture and a lovely pitter patter of an elegant, expressive and persistent finish. Gorgeous wine. Knocked me out. The drinkability right out of the gates is remarkable as is the freshness. Wonderful vintage for this. — 25 days ago

Another 2017 Arpepe winner. Stunning nose. Classic Nebbiolo. Stunning. Aromas of rose petals, tar, some earth, but dried earth, leather and just so deep and so good. Classic. Like MGM classic. Wow. Palate is a dream. Succulent and supple with just insane juiciness and balance. Pure. All red fruit and just perfect balance and sweetness. Sappy and long. And my goodness is this elegant. Maybe the most elegant non riserva I’ve had from ar pe pe. Genius wine. Utter beauty. — 2 months ago
