Ar.Pe.Pe Valtellina Superiore Riserva 'Sassella Vigna Regina' 2005

The Perego family has been cultivating fruit in the hillsides of Valtellina for over 150 years, working only with Nebbiolo (Chiavennasca.) High altitudes, granitic soils, and southern exposure allow fruit to optimally ripen and develop a distinct minerality. ‘Sassella Vigna Regina’ is the most elegant expression in the family’s line, showing lifted aromatics of herbs, roses, and spice, with notes of ripe cherry & tobacco. Will age for 15+ years.

Nebbiolo

This tartly tannic, headily fragrant, beguilingly complex king of Italian red grapes is brimming with bright fruit and earthy funk -- in versions ranging from explosive (Barolo) to ethereal (Valtellina).

Italy

The most fascinatingly diverse wine nation on earth, with more indigenous grape varieties than can be counted and a productivity rivaled only by France, with which it is perpetually neck-and-neck.
