Sperino's Lessona DOC is deep ruby with a beautiful nose typical of the Lessona area and boasts aromas of red cherries, dried rose petals, rosemary and pine needles. This wine is packed with fresh acidity, silky tannins and succulent red and black fruit flavours. The finish is long with a touch of minerality.
Sperino harvests their grapes by hand. After destemming and pressing the must is vinified in their old, gravity-fed cellar that dates back to the early 19th century. Fermentation takes place in short, open, upright oak casks with natural yeasts. After 28 days of maceration, the wine is left on its lees for nine months before being racked to 1,500-litre barrels where it is aged for 34 months.
The grapes for Sperino's Lessona are grown in the Ormeggio, Castagnola and Belvedere vineyards in the Orolungo region. Altitudes range from 290-350 metres. The soils in Lessona are unique. They originate from a super-volcano explosion 280 million years ago and were then covered by the sea before resurfacing with the birth of the Alps. This left marine sands from the Pliocene period (known as “Ori di Lessona”) on an igneous rock subsoil, mixed with more recent glacial sediment. The soil is rich in minerals and trace elements including iron, manganese, aluminium and zinc.
