We're consistently floored by the fabulous Nebbiolo (in this region, the grape is called "Chiavennasca") that issues from the Valtellina grower ArPePe. And- typical of the greatest Valtellina- there's a silken texture and approachability that makes it the kind of Nebbiolo that's simply hard to cellar, as it drinks so well young. We could wow you with critics' scores and numerous plaudits from the natural wine set, but if you're a fan of Nebbiolo from the adjoining region of Piemonte, just grab a bottle of this Lombardian treasure and find out what all the fuss is about. Stellar. Last tasted in June, 2020.
