This splendid 7.7 hectare hillside estate is situated in the small town of Lessona, near Biella in northern Piemonte. 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. Since the 1970s, Paolo has dreamed of revitalising the Sperino estate, a dream that has come to fruition with the help of his elder son, Luca, who now runs the estate and makes the wines with Paolo's guidance A blend of 85% Nebbiolo and 15% Vespolina, this pretty wine is light and fragrant, with perfumes of wild strawberries on the nose and a savory, mineral character on the palate. Pair it with a cheese and charcuterie plate, or with lighter tomato based dishes. Will only get better over the next year.
