|Delivery time:||within 1 business day|
Ar. Pe. Pe. is one of the best traditional wineries from the mountain region of Valtellina near the Swiss border. Here, the Nebbiolo grape attains the finesse and precision of Pinot Noir. This scrumptious, Burgundy-style red is full of sweet red berries and a firm tannic grip on the end.
This 100% Nebbiolo is vibrant, with notes of fresh cut flowers, rose petals and sour cherries, held together by a backbone of lithe tannins. Using traditional winemaking methods - the grapes are harvested manually even though the vines cling to a rocky slope - Ar. Pe. Pe. has achieved a wine of subtle complexity that speaks to its Alpine roots. Unlike the more famous Nebbiolo appellations of Barolo or Barbaresco, this wine is ready for tonight’s table and would appeal to lovers of Burgundian Pinot. Any edgy tang dissipates with a slight chill and decant, leaving the wine with a gorgeous line of acidity.
