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 Enthusiast

WE 93
"Wild berry, rose petal, smoke, new leather and alpine-herb aromas make for a delicate bouquet. Focused and savory, the bright, elegant palate delivers cranberry, pomegranate, white pepper and black tea framed in taut refined tannins and bright acidity. A tangy saline note lingers on the close. While some may find this almost too austere, if you love finesse you'll be captivated." -Kerin O'Keefe
