Essenza Valtellina Superiore Red Blend

A very open and fruity style Valtellina. Nose has loads of rock-infused cherry juice, counterbalanced by some old library scents. Although the color is surprisingly light, the flavors are expansive, with fruit at the front end then giving way to what is essentially liquid stone flavors. Tannins there but in check, nice acids. Unique style. Great with crescia (basically Italian empanadas filled with greens, ham, and cheese, and fried in olive oil.) — a month ago

La Spia

Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2016

Fint parfymerad. Lite burgundisk karaktär med klassiska nebbiolo-smaker. Fina smak- och doftlager. Mörka bär, rosor, piptobak, lavendel, granatäpple, citrus osv. Mineraligt avslut med pulverfina integrerade tanniner och massa frisk syra. — 2 days ago

Riserva Buon Consiglio Grumello Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2013

Wow. Blinded I’d say premier cru burgundy. Slow ox then full decant for three hours. From Zalto burgundy glasses. Even having had the range of Arpepe, nothing quite prepared you for the riservas. Swimming in violets. Soft leather. Strawberries. Cherry cordial. Ferns, undergrowth. Mineral, fresh spring water. This is just entering the drinking window. A profound wine. #arpepe — a month ago

Rutabaga and charcoal and hen of the woods and cherry garcia. Yeah there is a little VA but it’s not intrusive. Maybe more wild than some of their other stuff but still that mountain freshness — a month ago

Ca' Morei Valtellina Superiore Valgella Nebbiolo 2016

Wonderfully dark, but deliver the mouthfeel of nebbiolo north of piemonte: much lighter, with a bit of plum and some cherry. Even can identify apricot. An extremely interesting wine, with tannins, but very little acidity. — 12 days ago
