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.

Professional Reviews

Wine Spectator

WS 95
"Fresh and focused this seamless medium-bodied red offers flavors of cured tobacco dried raspberry macerated cherry and iron that show a light pleasing plumpness while fine-grained tannins provide definition emerging on the well-spiced smoky finish."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 98
" Intoxicating scents of smoke, flint, dried mountain herb and woodland berry are just some of the multifaceted aromas you'll find in this dazzling Nebbiolo. It's extremely elegant, with a weightless intensity, delivering Marasca cherry, crushed strawberry, white pepper and tobacco framed by fine tannins. Vibrant acidity gives it impeccable balance, while a flinty mineral vein energizes the finish. Some may find this almost too ethereal while lovers of finesse, complexity and balance will be enchanted." -Kerin O'keefe
