Variety: Nebbiolo

In conversation with Italian winemakers, or vignaoioli if you will, Arpepe is arguably the best of the best. Wine publications don’t seem to disagree; the awards are countless. No wonder, given the amount of work and care that must go into the vines, grown on precariously-stacked terraces on the slopes of Valtellina, two hours north of Milan toward the Swiss border. Here, at these heights, Nebbiolo is known by another name, Chiavennasca. It grows in villages that might bring to mind Rosemary’s Baby – Sassella, Grumello, Inferno! The high-altitude, cool weather climate transforms the grape into something quite different than what you might find in neighboring Piemonte. While Barolo may be king, Valtellina is a wizard.

Translation works not only with languages, but with terroir to bottle. Grumello, where the topsoil is a bit deeper than in the other two villages, has softer ground, producing a softer, less angular wine. Its roundness renders it ready-to-drink, but its elevation keeps it age-worthy.
