Inferno Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2013


Entry level Valtellina showing some age w/beautiful amber bricking, ruby see thru - showing elegantly styled rose petals, tart cherry, bit dusty, some tar & soil but overall more lifted & light on its feet. Med bodied (this has no doubt shed some weight) on palate, more tart fruit & secondary flavors, needed more structure & acidity. Close out price of well under $20 was a fantastic deal. Def drink up! PS: bump for 2nd night showing — 6 days ago

Fiamme Antiche Inferno Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2017

Another 2017 Arpepe winner. Stunning nose. Classic Nebbiolo. Stunning. Aromas of rose petals, tar, some earth, but dried earth, leather and just so deep and so good. Classic. Like MGM classic. Wow. Palate is a dream. Succulent and supple with just insane juiciness and balance. Pure. All red fruit and just perfect balance and sweetness. Sappy and long. And my goodness is this elegant. Maybe the most elegant non riserva I’ve had from ar pe pe. Genius wine. Utter beauty. — 2 months ago

Stunning nose. I adore 17 at Ar Pe Pe. So elegant and finesse driven with stunning aromas. Just in your face soppy cherries, confectionery cherries and vivid roses, tar and tobacco on a bed of minerality. This is so expressive. Juicy and sweet and just so transparent and complex. Finely grained tannins and lovely freshness and purity. Terrific opulence and inner mouth aromas. Ripe and crunchy tannins and a silky texture and a lovely pitter patter of an elegant, expressive and persistent finish. Gorgeous wine. Knocked me out. The drinkability right out of the gates is remarkable as is the freshness. Wonderful vintage for this. — 24 days ago

Lugana Trebbiano 2021

Grape is 100% Turbiana(apparently dialectal expression for Trebbiano)
The wine is refreshing, easy drinking
Not intellectual
It has fruit and flowers on the nose and it's pretty mineral on the palate too
You could struggle to stop on the spot
Not extremely long
