PRODUCER PROFILE

Piedmont, Italy
Proprieta Sperino

In 1999, Paolo De Marchi and his son Luca began laying the foundation to bring back the original family cellars in Lessona. With the goal of bringing the legendary wines of northern Piedmont back into the limelight. The first vintage 2004 was released in 2006. Most of the vines owned by Proprietà Sperino are in the historic district of Ori (meaning ‘gold’ in Italian), so-called for its bright yellow, deep marine sands characterizing the soil on the sunny pre-alpine plateau of Orolungo.

Proprietà Sperino now counts eight hectares of vines, at the foot of Monte Rosa. Six are in Lessona, split between the Belvedere, Ormeggio, Castagnola, Rava and Covà vineyards. The other two and a half make up the Madonna degli Angeli vineyard around the hamlet of Forte, in Bramaterra country. The mineral rich sands of this area slow the Piedmont. The cellars are located in the old castle of Lessona, dating back over 200 years. This may be one of the most important and historical wine restoration projects in Italy today.
