Variety: Nebbiolo and Vespolina
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.
The Nebbiolo and Vespolina come from vineyards across Bramaterra and Lessona and DOC’s. The soils there are rich, full of minerals. The juice macerates with their skins for just 12 hours and then the wine stays on their lees for three months. It is further aged in bottle before release. This is a rare style of rose that can age. It is complex and quaffable, hinting at layers of floral and minerality in the class.
