Vinous, 96 Points 

"Ar.Pe.Pe’s 2002 Valtellina Superiore Sassella Riserva Rocce Rosse is just as compelling as it was a few years ago, when I first tasted it.  Moreover, it clearly shows that top-flight Nebbiolo from Valtellina deserves a seat at the table next to the world’s greatest wines." 

Decanter, 94 Points 

"The 2002 vintage was rainy and cold across northern Italy but in general Lombardy's Valtellina region fared much better for Nebbiolo than Piedmont. Ar.Pe.Pe.'s Rocce Rosse is one of the great successes. Delicate and fine boned, this gets more structure from acidity than tannin. Hauntingly fragrant, it a potpourri of alpine blossoms, tobacco, tea and crushed stones. While this won't develop any further, it will continue to drink beautifully in the near term." 

Alcohol: 13%
