A bright, youthful colour with medium intensity gives way to a pure, lifted perfume that combines cherries and plums.

On the palate, the wine has a good depth of supple, sinewy fruit that is beautifully balanced and long on finish.

Grapes for this wine are grown in the Ormeggio, Castagnola and Belvedere vineyards in Lessona in the Orolungo region. The altitude is between 290-350m above sea level. Soils are sandy and acidic (pH 4.5 - 5.5) and rich in minerals and trace elements including iron, manganese, aluminium and zinc. Some fruit is also sourced from the 35 year old Madonna degli Angeli vineyard in Brusnengo in the Forte region which is included in the Bramaterra D.O.C.

The harvest was done by hand with the Vespolina and Croatina grapes picked in the last ten days of September and the Nebbiolo slightly later in the middle of October.

The wines are vinified in the old, gravity-fed cellar which dates back to the beginning of the 19th Century. Fermentation took place in squat, open upright oak casks. Maceration lasted 3-4 weeks with regular punching down of the cap. The wine was aged in a mixture of new and old barriques (225L), puncheons (500L) and 15 hectolitre casks for 18 months.

Grape varieties: 65% Nebbiolo, 20% Vespolina, 15% Croatina.

Producer Information

This splendid 7 hectare hillside estate is situated in the small town of
Lessona, near Biella in northern Piemonte. It passed into the De Marchi
family through their relative, Felice Sperino, a passionate viticulturist
and professor in Turin. Paolo De Marchi is the winemaker and owner of
top Chianti Classico estate, Isole e Olena, and he inherited Proprieta
Sperino from his grandfather.
Since the 1970s, Paolo has dreamed of revitalising the Sperino estate and in the last few years has started doing so, together with his elder son, Luca. They plan to increase the area under vineyard to 8 hectares in the future. The climate here is more moderate than in the Langhe, with milder winters due to the protection provided by the Alps to the north. The sandier soil, which is among the most acidic in the wine producing world, together with a
longer growing season, gives wines which are less burly and structured
than those from the Langhe.
