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.

"Underbrush, camphor, forest berry and a potpourri of botanical herbs lead the way on this stunning wine. The chiseled, savory palate is loaded with finesse and intriguing tension, doling out pomegranate, blood orange, licorice and truffle while flinty mineral adds depth. Firm, refined tannins and bright acidity provide the elegant backbone. Drink through 2034." -Kerin O'keefe
