Paolo De Marchi, owner of top Chianti Classico estate Isole e Olena, inherited Proprietà Sperino from his grandfather, Felice Sperino, a passionate viticulturist and professor in Turin. The hillside estate is situated in the small town of Lessona, near Biella in northern Piemonte.
Uvaggio' means 'blend of grapes' in Italian and this wine celebrates the indigenous varieties of Lessona: Nebbiolo 65%, Vespolina 25% and Croatina 10%.
Despite the worst spring frost int the Alto- Piedmont in 40 years, the quality of the fruit from the 2017 harvest was very high. The extremely hot and dry summer resulted in concentrated berries that produce full-bodied wines.
The wine shows vibrant red fruit with spicy notes. A well balanced wine with supple, approachable tannins and juicy acidity. More complex savoury and mineral notes come through on the long finish.
