“Ar.pe.pe” is derived from the name Arturo Pelizzatti Perego who – having worked alongside his father and grandfather – created the company Arpepe in 1984. Valtellina borders Switzerland in northern Italy and is known for its ski fields, hot spring spas, cheeses, and wines. Inferno is one of the best villages for red wine. Chiavennasca is the regional name for nebbiolo, and Flamme Antiche is just that, a 100% of the same variety associated with Piedmont’s Barolo and Barbaresco. Bursting with red cherries and delicate strawberry fruit. The eager fruitiness is caressed by equally vivacious, ripe, rich tannins. Very intense and persistent fruit. So too the amazing freshness. Which allows this full-bodied red to be so shamelessly youthful.
