SPERINO 2008 LESSONA

WINE ADVOCATE 95 POINTS - "The 2008 Lessona is a serious, serious wine endowed with superb depth and textural richness. Today the tannins are a bit firm, and the wine is, of course, very young, but there is no denying the sheer finesse and pedigree of what is in the glass. Juicy dark cherries, plums, graphite, mint and sweet herbs flesh out beautifully as the 2008 continues to open up. This is a dazzling effort from the De Marchis and Proprieta Sperino. I canít wait to see how the 2008 ages. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028."

If you're not yet familiar with the Lessona wine-making region in Italy, now's your chance to discover it with a few stellar wines from Proprieta Sperino! Although best known for the wines he makes at Isole e Olena in Tuscany, Paolo de Marchi is originally from Piedmont. In recent years his dream was to restore the centuries-old tradition of his native Lessona wines by recovering the historic family cellars that dated back to the early nineteen hundreds and producing a wine with the greatest respect for local tradition. Today, with son Luca at the helm of production, Proprieta Sperino is offering some of the best reds from this ever-growing Northern Piedmont region.
