The propietà Sperino is the realization of a dream by Paolo de Marchi a famous personality in the world of Italian wines, perhaps more know for his other creature Cepparello a benchmark wine from Tuscany.
Continental climate at the foot of Biellese pre-alpine hills, soil contain ancient marine sand which give good acid structure to the wine and also allow the roots to easily discovery the nourishment of the mineral content in the soil.
The climate is dry, with generous light and cool night breeze which mitigate the hot summer days allowing a good rest to the vines in the night time without stressful them. This diurnal temperature allowing a long growing season, which results in a wine with fine flavors with mature tannin and savoury finishing.
At the restaurant in Rome the sommelier give me more information on the process of aging apparently fermentation has been done in open wooden tanks with long maceration for four to five weeks and aging in big barrel for 30 months.
The wine was star bright ruby color with brilliant and vivid intensity with watery orange rim fade out on the edge of the nail wine. The viscosity was slowly with tight and slowly legs.
Pure freshness on the nose some violet, rose petal, red fruit as cherry, raspberry and strawberry tar, some balsamic menthol and hints of spiciness with intense minerality as sandy, earth and fossil.
Palate savoury, finesse with mellow tannin and perfectly structure.
Was a very good experience…
