Wine maker notes
Made with only Nebbiolo grapes, thanks to its intriguing simplicity and easy drinkability, this is the perfect wine for every day, while standing up to even the most important occasions. Transparent garnet red, it surprises us with its gentle floral notes, which lead to a fresh, fruity and harmonious taste. Delightful and joyous, it’s easy to match with food but is perfect with all traditional cuisine from Valtellina. To be served in large glasses at 12-14°C.
In 1984, Arturo Pelizzatti Perego, bolstered by the experience gained in his fathers and grandfathers firm, decided to create ARPEPE. His aim was to realize the full potential of the unique Valtellina terroir with all the pride and determination required for such an ambitious goal.
To do so, Arturo started producing long-aging Nebbiolo wines according to the rules of the oldest traditions.
Today, Isabella, Emanuele and Guido continue their fathers work as the fifth generation of winemakers and growers. In just a few years, thanks to careful technological innovations and the choice of a young and passionate team, Arturos dream has come true: his rare wines are once again a major point of reference on the national and international wine scene.
The vineyards in Valtellina stretch over steep and stony slopes, where nature has been testing the farmer for centuries, in the struggle for the realization of a wonderful, peerlees work.
Wall above wall, broken only by arduous strips of vineyards, on the rocky steps are the roots which get the richness of the soil.
The position of the valley, from East to West, allows the Rethian side to be in the sun all day long.
We follow the product from the vine to the bottle with the care that you can have when you love your job,and this is something which cannot be separated from our history.
Actually our family has given a demonstration of this passion through five generations: our father’s great grandfather Giovanni was already a wine grower and maker in the far off 1860.
