This means, that first you have to enter the *passphrase* your local ssh
password store is protected with. Afterwards, you have to enter the
remote *password* of sanpietro.

Tramp shall ask you *twice*, once for the passphrase, once for the password.

It looks to me, like you have entered three times the wrong
*passphrase*. Haven't you?

What did Tramp ask (in the prompt), and what did you enter?

(Unfortunately, I cannot see too much in the traces, because due to
security reasons most password actions are filtered out by Tramp)

Best regards, Michael.
