“The first vintage of Rosso di Valtellina made at Ar. Pe. Pe. was in 2003. Up until then, the winery only released wines from single zones within Valtellina. The growing season and harvest in 2003 were full of challenges. In response to the difficulties of the vintage, the decision was made to not sell off fruit to the local co-op but instead to declassify the single vineyards into one wine that was true to its vintage. A different wine needed a different vinfication strategy so they shortened the length of maceration and left the wine for less time in wood than what was usual. The wine ended up evolving beautifully in bottle was very well received. Since then, Ar. Pe. Pe. has continued making the Rosso from the lower parts of their parcels in Sassella and Grumello. The Rosso di Valtellina is vinified in stainless steel and spends three months in old large-format chestnut botti (50 hectoliter).”
