The 2007 Valtellina Superiore Sassella Riserva Rocce Rosse is another superb wine from Ar.Pe.Pe. Four years in cask and several more in bottle - along with the personality of the year - yielded a relatively soft Valtellina Superiore with gentle contours and plenty of appeal. Readers who prefer wines with delineation and energy will find those qualities more expressed in some of the other wines in this range. The 2007 Rocce Rosse, on the other hand, is a relatively easygoing wine that can be enjoyed with minimal fanfare. It also appears to be on a relatively fast curve of aging.

Newly released nebbiolo, 10 years after harvest it is still young and fresh, but it already revealed hints of dried violets, blueberries, sweet tobacco and eucalyptus. Its elegant tannins at the palate, jointly with a tense and red fruit acidity, makes it really pleasant to drink immediately, but the suggestion is to keep it for other 10 years to find deeper aromas. Great job, Arpepe Winery!

Spring 2020. This had a stunning nose of sandalwood and pandan - unique and very evocative (for me, of Bali). Flavorful but ethereal.
