Ar.Pe.Pe. is the acronym used by Arturo Pelizzatti Perego for the family winery that he re-established in Sondrio in 1984. The Nebbiolo grape, known locally as Chiavennasca, is the focus of this region and Ar.Pe.Pe. is arguably its greatest master.
The next generation - Emanuele, Guido and Isabella now direct the winery. According to Emanuele Pelizzatti, "It’s not about structure or concentration. It’s about minerality and finesse. Ours is a patrimony of elegance." In addition to a youthful Rosso di Valtellina, eight other red wines are made based on the quality of each vintage, released four to eight years after harvest.
