Convert Simple Sidebar Layout Image / Design to HTML + CSS

I have this design that we'd like to use as the sidebar of a website that I'm having a hard time completing - the main issue being the rotated text that I'm struggling with! We need this completed by Friday, March 10.

It should be responsive ( work on Mobile, will be tested on recent iPhones ) and function cross browser ( Safari, Chrome, recent IE ). It should always take up 100% width vertically and take up enough width for all of the content to appear as it does in the image ( nothing should be cropped / change position ).

Edit: As someone mentioned below, we need this image emulated as HTML / CSS so that it is presented as semantic HTML, *not*this image placed on a page

Additionally, feel free to use any approximate font from google fonts or just Helvetica in the solution!

Thank you very much for your time!

Oh god... How do you expect users to click on a navigation item that's less than 10px wide? Or read the bottom text without turning their head?

I'm not going to bother with a solution, because @farolanf's is just about perfect. But I am curious... Ask your designer if they can tell the difference between these two images:

Why do you ask this? They are the same...

Not quite - it's the alignment of the text of the section titles (shown by the red) line that's off in the second image. I showed this to a few other people and got varying results, but for me it's obvious & unsettling to see them not aligned in the right image.

I never noticed until you wrote it. Even with your red lines.
