A wine with fruity fine flavours, with lovely aromas of wild strawberry with hints of black pepper.

On the palate it has a savoury and minerally character and fine, supple tannins with a lively, fresh finish.

Sheltered by the Alps, Lessona did not undergo eolic erosion, so its sandy, acidic soil, with a pH of 4.5 - 5.5, is very well drained. In these conditions, the vines put down deep roots in search of the mineral nutrients they require. The climate is dry with wonderful light, and cool night breezes blowing from the Alps to the north mitigate the hot summer days. This in turn ensures a long growing season. The density of planting is 5.000 vines per hectare.

The grapes were harvested by hand in little crates, Vespolina at the end of September and Nebbiolo in the middle of October.

After 4/6 hours of skin contact, the must was separated from the skins. A slow fermentation at 16°C controlled temperature followed. The wine was kept in stainless steel tanks and was then left to decant at low temperatures in order to reach natural stability. No malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place in order to keep the wine fresh.

Grape varieties 70% Nebbiolo, 30% Vespolina.

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.
