Staff Pick Notes

What if I told you that some of the finest Nebbiolo in Italy is found outside of Piedmont. Would you believe me? All doubt will be removed once you try a bottle from ARPEPE. Located in the Alps, this is mountain Nebbiolo at its finest. Supremely aromatic, elegant, yet full of life and personality, Nebbiolo from Valtellina is known locally as Chiavennasca.
