AR.PEPE Rosso Valtellina 2013$40.00
Nebbiolo might rule in Piedmont, but it is not the only king.
In this area, Nebbiolo takes on a different expression. Soils are rocky and clay based and can often retain a lot of heat. In turn, certain zones can offer wines that are powerful, yet restrained at the same time.
100% Nebbiolo (AKA chiavennasca), this red sees long skin contact and refinement in barrel, cement and then into bottle. Don't expect extraction or density, this wine is floral, delicate and bright.
is back-ordered. We will ship it separately in 10 to 15 days.
