Stated as “a courageous wine growing archaeology project, that speaks of passion. Proprieta Sperino is the realization of a dream: to restore the important tradition of Lessona wines by recovering the historic cellars to produce a wine with the greatest respect for local tradition.” This is the undertaking of famed winemaker, Paolo di Marchi, a pursuit that defines the second portion of his wine career. Paolo gained recognition at his Tuscan property, Isole e Olena, and now he wants to revive the Northern Piemonte site that has been in his family for years. This project was started in 1999 and now Paolo, with his son Luca, are producing classic wines from these incredible vineyards, which have a history dating back to the early 1800’s. It is exciting to see work going back into the region to make it great again.
This Nebbiolo, Vespolina, and Croatina blend comes from a small DOC nestled next to the Bramaterra and Lessona appellations. “Uvaggio” is the traditional name for a blend made with different grape varieties. Coste della Sesia Rosso is the name of this appellation from Alta Piedmonte, sitting right next to Bramaterra and Lessona. The wine ages in a combination of barrique, barrel, and oval for 18 months before ageing in the bottle for several months prior to its release.
