ARPEPE is short for Arturo Pelizzatti Perego, the founder of the estate. Sadly Arturo passed 15 years ago, but his children have continued the work he started. Emanuele and Isabella have expanded the winery and this allows them the luxury of patience. They can age the wines for years in tanks, concrete vats and large neutral oak barrels until they are ready to bottle, and they can age them even longer in bottle until they are ready to sell and drink.

The vineyard work is laborious and almost entirely by hand due to the steepness of the slope. They eschew the use of herbicides and pesticides and essentially farm the same way as their ancestors did.

"All about elegance and energy, this gorgeous Nebbiolo has invigorating scents of Alpine herb, wild red berry, dog rose and smoky flint with a whiff of new leather. Focused and boasting great energy, the vibrant palate delivers wild strawberry, red cherry, tobacco and a saline mineral note set against a backbone of taut, refined tannins. Bright acidity keeps it balanced and youthfully tense. Drink through 2034." -Kerin O'keefe
