THANKSGIVING vino! TASTING SATURDAY 2-5pm! The guys finally stopped arm wrestling and we chose a darn good lineup - all Italian special varietal wines! We guarantee a couple things: you’ll find a wine you’ll LOVE drinking on Thanksgiving, you’ll find a wine you’ll *accidentally* open before Thanksgiving 🤭(just can’t resist!), and you’ll have FUN! Join us, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Hier, j’ai eu l’immense plaisir d’entendre et d’échanger avec Paolo de Marchi, légende du Chianti mais surtout un piémontais passionné de sa région. Le printemps dernier, j’avais eu la chance de prendre quelques bières avec son fils Luca qui dirige maintenant le domaine dans les contreforts des Alpes. Avec Proprietà Sperino, le duo père/fils possède environ le le tiers de l’appellation, soit un tout petit 8 hectares. Avant la venue du phylloxéra à la fin du 19e siècle, Lessona en comptait plus de 800. Comme il le dit lui même, son aventure de faire renaître ce terroir du nord piémontais tient presque de l’archéologie vinicole.
Et pourtant, le vin a tout pour charmer: précision, fraîcheur, élégance et souplesse. Une souplesse que l’on souhaiterait plus souvent avec le tannique nebbiolo.
J’avoue, je suis profondément un fan !

A courageous ‘wine growing archaeology’ project, that speaks of passion.
Proprietà Sperino is the realisation 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. In the ‘seventies, Paolo De Marchi moved to Tuscany where he founded the wine producing estate Isole & Olena, which played a leading role in the rebirth of Chianti Classico. But his desire was to return to his family origins one day, and indeed in 1999 with his son Luca he did, and once again took the reins of the historic family estate, at the Castle of Lessona in via Sperino.

This wine-weekend our friends @janinaschmitt0312 and @rdkwines visited us at our workingplace. Of course we ended up at home, with a lot of wine, discussing seriously about wine ! 😝
This bottle of Sperino Rose arrived as a late season gift and I couldn’t be happier! What started as a rough Sunday ended great with pan seared swordfish, asparagus, and risotto. #ProprietaSperino#Rose#moorebrotherswine

Tough year but accessible a little earlier than recent vintages. Feminine graces of Lessona. / Paolo said the wine in the top half of the Alto Piemonte bottles stood upright for decades... tastes like a kind of magical liquid (water) expressing Lessona’s terroir! Glad I hit him with that rando question!!
My wife and I were looking after friends of ours kids this past weekend in Peebles ..... and look what those pesky kids drove us to!!😳😜. .
Proprieta Sperino ‘L Franc ****** 2010 £80 per bottle @villeneuve_wines @villeneuvewinesedinburgh A simply superb wine made by Paolo Di Marchi. 100% Cabernet Franc, from a 0.4 hectare vineyard in Lessona, northern Piemonte. Made the proper way - 40 day manceration in wooden, open top fermentation tanks. Oak barrique aging for 40 months, some new some used. A real treat, worth every penny and worth spending a weekend in Peebles for, not that one needs an excuse for that.
✔ Знакомство с винами от Sperino.
Начали с магнума шампанского. Сыры, хлеб, домашнее оливковое масло, закуски... Граппа тоже была😊🔫
Справа два "Бандита" из Каберне Фран. Выращивать это виноград в регионе для изготовления вина нельзя по-закону, отсюда и название. Спрос на это редкое вино высок🍷

2011 Proprietà Sperino - Lessona (93 pts) #winereview - First off this wine has a great story behind it. This wine is made by the de Marchi family who own Isole & Olena that make great elegant Chiant Classicos and Cepparello the famous Sangiovese based Super Tuscan. There hometown is in Northern Piedmont. In 1999 they returned to their family estate in Lessona, cleared the forest that grew around the vines and started making this 💯 Nebbiolo wine and blend of Nebbiolo, Vespolina, and Croatina called Uvaggio. The prodigal sons have returned to restore Lessona's wine making legacy to what it once was in turn of the 20th century. .
Let's get into the 🍷. Medium- ruby color with a pale garnet rim. Medium+ intensity on the nose. Aromas of dark cherry, blackberry, raspberry, violets, anise, coffee, and a hint of menthol. On the palate the wine is dry, high acidity, medium+ alcohol, medium+ grippy yet fine tannins, and medium body. There is a weightiness to the wine, but it's only medium body which is confusing me in a good way. Ripe dark cherry and blackberry to start. Quickly follows into dried flowers, anise, and tobacco. And finishes with a long finish that I can only describe as wild berry sorbet with mint. There is a creaminess that is why I am saying sorbet. By far this is the best Lessona I have ever tried albeit a small sample size. There is an elegant and refinement to the wine. It's a little lighter in terms of structure than Barolo or Barbaresco, but balances flavor, great acidity, and elegant fine tannins in a harmonious package. Well done! 👏
