I do love the wines, though I think that you really have to go to their Valtellina Superiore wines to start getting much power. The Rosso is very elegant for sure, as expected, and very Pinot like. I still think one of the best values in the world of wine is Vallana. Their Boca and Colline Novaresi will outlive me and cost $25 and $40 respectively. ArPePe Rosso is about $30-35.
