93pointsArpepe 2011 Sassella Stella Retica Riserva (Valtellina Superiore)

Cellar Selection

Alpine herb, crushed stone, wild berry, pressed rose and a whiff of tar are some of the aromas you'll find on this wonderfully fragrant Nebbiolo. The racy elegant palate delivers succulent sour cherry, star anise, wild mint and a balsamic note while assertive but refined tannins and vibrant acidity provide ageworthy support. A vein of flinty mineral closes the finish. Drink 2018–2028. Kerin O’Keefe
