This week on In the Drink, host Joe Campanale is joined in the studio by Isabella Pelizatti Perego of the Arturo Pelizzatti Perego winery, aka Ar.Pe.Pe.
Isabella Pelizatti Perego, is part of the fifth generation, along with her brothers Emmanuel and Guido making wines in Valtellina. Her grandfather Arturo renamed the family estate to Ar.Pe.Pe. with the 1984 harvest. As one of the best traditional wineries from Valtellina, the grapes see long macerations and even longer bottle-aging at the cellar. Isabella has done little to change the winemaking of her father and his; wines are released when ready.
