Ar. Pe. Pe. "Sassella Stella Retica Riserva" Valtellina Superiore 2006

93 Our Score
(10/2015) Another drop dead gorgeous offering from Ar.Pe.Pe. The 2006 Sassella Stella Retica Riserva experiences extended aging in both barrel and bottle, and despite this aging process, there is a freshness to the wine that is undeniable. The Sassella bottling exhibits a touch more power and fruit compared to the Grumello site, while still running the entire gambit of Nebbiolo flavors and aromas. This is a wonderful expression of mountain grown Nebbiolo with notes of wild game, spice, tar, dried roses, orange peel and a sundrenched minerality that gently wraps around the palate. There is no doubt that Ar.Pe.Pe is crafting some of the most thoughtful and authentic wines in Valtellina. This wine has a gloriously long life ahead of it.
