Arpepe - Rosso di Valtelina - 2020

Piedmont, Italy

The Rosso di Valtellina comes from several plots in Valtellina lying at an altitude of 350 to 400 metres and planted on granite and schist soils. Because the vines lie on a very steep hillside, the harvest is manual and carried on shoulders in small baskets. Once the grapes reach the winery, they are thoroughly selected, and the grapes are gently pressed and left to macerate for 90 days. Following spontaneous fermentation, the wine is aged six months in barrel before being bottled. Since 2014, Ar Pe Pe has been experimenting with longer macerations seeking greater complexity and balance. This Rosso sees a long 130 days on the skins. Self-assured yet unpretentious, it offers oodles of joyous drinkability. The tea and white pepper scents are assertive and focused, while the palate is lovely, with powdery tannins melting into the strawberry core. It finishes clean with a peppermint twist.
