Nose has some brett? Weird. Some cherry. But a lot of band aid and horse. Palate has lovey cherry fruit, great freshness and purity. Energetic and precise. Nice Glou Glou. I’ll wait on the nose, as some funk is blowing off. Very clean, but the brett is an issue for me. — 25 days ago
Nose is reticent at first but has hints of glorious spice. Soon wood shavings (sawdust?) and a hint of sour cherries. It slowly opens into gorges spicey mid season cherries. Gorgeous layering. Very floral as well. Rose petals. Fresh. Again, so so refined, delicate and cloud like. Palate is ripe and juicy with exquisite balance and purity. My goodness this is so refined and has such succulent and precise mid season cherry fruit. Juicy with just amazing cherry fruit. It just clobbers one over the head but it is so refined and juicy and long. Wow. Really concentrated and resonant. — a month ago
Oh wow. This is amazing. Nose starts out reticent. Some spice, some chestnut. It will come. And it does! A gamey, feral, sweet aromas with saline develops. Wow. But man oh man the palate is just bonkers. Sweet, decadent but fiercely energetic and textured. Amazingly elegant tannins and such purity. OMG. This is sick. The level of refinement combined with the purity is fruit is insane. Perfectly ripened mid season cherries. Wow. Incredible concentration and just perfect ripeness. The fruit is plentiful and prodigious. Amazing length.
After an hour the nose is just killer. Amazing. Stunning smokey cherries. Like a potpourri. What a wine. — a month ago
The 2007 Valtellina Superiore Sassella Riserva Rocce Rosse is another superb wine from Ar.Pe.Pe. Four years in cask and several more in bottle - along with the personality of the year - yielded a relatively soft Valtellina Superiore with gentle contours and plenty of appeal. Readers who prefer wines with delineation and energy will find those qualities more expressed in some of the other wines in this range. The 2007 Rocce Rosse, on the other hand, is a relatively easygoing wine that can be enjoyed with minimal fanfare. It also appears to be on a relatively fast curve of aging.

Copper-peach color in our glasses.
Nose has day old orange peel, fresh lemon zest, flaked sea salt and wilted daffodils.
Palate has juiced strawberry and Clementine orange, partially dried cherry, green table grape skin and a lightly chalky finish.
Really singing after about 90m open.
Proof positive that you can't predetermine the quality of a wine by the quality of its label. — 10 days ago
