Arpepe - Sassella - Lombardy, Italy


100% Nebbiolo

If you think you don’t like Nebbiolo, think again. Valtellina in northern Lombardy is noticeably cooler than Piemonte in the south. The Perego family farm their vines on steep, terraced slopes that rise up to 700m above sea level. This produces a vibrant, elegant expression of Nebbiolo that is much less tannic and more approachable in its youth.

Sassella means 'rock', and this cuvée is made from vines over fifty years old planted in the mountainous upper reaches of the family's vineyard, at around 400-550m altitude. The grapes undergo four months of maceration before another year and a half in old acacia and chestnut barrels.

Tasting notes: Sour red cherry, dried flowers, truffles. An ethereal wine balancing freshness and firm tannins.

?Food pairing:? This wine calls out for a rich, meaty pasta dish, such as our delicious alpine beef ragu.
