Proprietà Sperino | Piemonte
Proprietà Sperino is a splendid 10 hectare hillside estate situated in the small town of Lessona, near Biella in northern Piemonte. It passed into the De Marchi family (of top Chianti Classico estate, Isole e Olena) through their relative, Felice Sperino, a passionate viticulturist and professor in Turin.
Since the 1970s, Paolo De Marchi 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. The wines are consistently superb. They are very Burgundian in style, light in colour yet intense, scented and superbly long.
