ARPEPE Rosso di Valtellina

‘We select a portion of Grumello and Sassella in the cellar.’ 100 days on the skins and 12 months in oak. ‘The idea from now on is that this wine is going to be a kind of pre-release as an indication of what is to come with the crus. This wine has the fruitiness of Grumello [soils are slightly deeper and with a southern exposure], but is always a little sweeter, rounder and softer than Sassella. Sassella is more minerally. Soils here are much more rocky and there is very little top soil, hence the wine tends to be a little more austere and you get the tension of the rocks. 2016 was a more classic vintage [cf the hot and early 2017] and we started picking in mid October.’
