Arpepe - Sassella Riserva "Rocce Rosse" '13 - Valtellina, 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.

This wine is made from a single plot of vines within the Sassella "cru". A cru is a French term for a small area of vines recognised for producing superior grapes. "Rocce Rosse" is named after the red granite soils of this particular plot. Riserva wines are only produced in the best years, usually three times every decade, and are aged for four years in huge old chestnut casks. 

Tasting notes: Red cherries, potpourri, truffles, tobacco. An elegant, complex wine with gentle tannins. Extraordinarily complex.

Food pairing: Try with an indulgent truffle risotto or a buttery ravioli dish.
