Bright ruby red with garnet reflections. Fine, elegant, and fruity aromas of raspberry, strawberry and
black cherries. Dry, warm, quite smooth, fresh, medium-bodied, rightly tannic, intense, quite persistent, fresh and fruity finish
Match with pasta with meat sauce and medium seasoned cheese.
The Ar. Pe. Pe. Rosso di Valtellina has a nose of ripe, dried cherries, with mint and wild mountain herbs. This wine is ethereal, bright and lithe in the mouth and finishes with a spice box warmth that lands gently on the palate and persists.
"The Ar. Pe. Pe. Rosso di Valtellina is very pretty and lifted in feel. Crushed flowers, sweet red berry fruit, mint and white pepper give this an attractive top register of aromatic intensity as this airy, mid-weight Valtellina red opens up in the glass. This wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for at least a handful of years. I find it irresistibly delicious right now. Drinking window: 2020 - 2027

"This gorgeous red evokes rose, strawberry, raspberry and cherry fruit, shaded by tobacco, tar and wild thyme notes. Pure, sleek and intense, with a firm base of tannins and vibrant acidity for support. This should evolve beautifully. Be patient. Best from 2022 through 2043."- Wine Spectator
Southern Wine and Spirits
Sun-kissed thyme and marjoram notes turn to forest floor earthiness before merging with juicy red berry – strawberry, cherry, plum – and citrus fruits, like blood orange. The wine gets volume in the palate with remarkable fruit concentration sustained by silky, smooth tannins and bright acidity. The wine then turns to a spicy finish, smoky notes and a lovely salinity.
