These aged ARPEPE riservas are no joke. Real bricking, ruby-brown almost to the core. Full on tertiary. But also very pretty from the get go: chestnuts, barley porridge, cherry juice, baking spice, dried oregano. And that beautiful cool core Valtellina character. Nothing left to be desired on the palate either, long tart, smooth and resonant. Very precise and impressive.

Needed a few minutes to open up but wonderfully aromatic and silky smooth. Sour cherry with floral and herbal aromatics.

Took time for the Brett to fade away, ended up being silky, rustic and lush.

Nose is just piercingly clear cherry and cherry flower. A hint of mountain field.

Palate is so clean. Almost like a mountain stream infused with cherries. Some spice. Almost a lavender extract. Wow. Very distinctive. As it opens some lovely dustiness on the palate.

Finish is so perfect. Cherries. Lingering cherry licorice.

Spring 2020. This had a brown spice bouquet and transparent but rounded palate. Very distinctive from Nebbiolo from the Langhe.
