Paolo and Luca Restoring Historic Vineyard in Lessona

Peter writes,

 As many of you know  Proprieta Sperino in Lessona makes a Nebbiolo rose, one that also ages well for a few years. As a matter of fact we like it even better now than last year. The 2016 Proprieta Sperino Rosa del Rosais showing smooth cherry fruit and a touch of spice, all in a balanced format.

            Last year when I visited owner Paolo de Marchi at his winery in Tuscany, we tasted the 2014 and 2015 and both were drinking very well. Meanwhile, his son Luca is actually the one who came up with this rose. Paolo thought it was crazy to use expensive Nebbiolo grapes for that purpose. Luca prevailed and we get to enjoy.

2016 Proprieta Sperino Rosa del Rosa: Pale pink. Aromas and flavors of cherries and white pepper. Fresh and light on the palate with a nicely structured mouth feel. Best with fish, white meat or cheese. Very Good Plus Plus  17.99/bottle 

 

Special case price: Twelve bottles of the above for a special price of $175 (14.58)
