Pelizzatti Perego family has been running AR.PE.PE, a picturesque property, within far north Lombardy, tucked into the hillsides of the Rhaetian Alps & the Orobie Mountains, for 5 generations. Vineyards here are steeply terraced and unaccessible via mechanization. The family continues to craft aromatic and nuanced Nebbiolo from these extreme vineyard locations. Il Pettirosso is tangy and fragrant, continues to develop as it opens up in a decanter. A wine that is providing great drinking pleasure now but most certainly has a place in your cellar.
Pairing: Roasted Duck, mushroom dishes
Grape: Nebbiolo aka Chiavennasca, 50 - 100 year old vines
