2010 Proprieta Sperino Uvaggio Coste della Sesia

Merchant Reviews

The eight hectares of vines at Proprietà Sperino are mostly in the district of Ori, so-called for the deep yellow marine sand that lies on the sun-drenched, sub-alpine plateau of Orolungo. If you scoop up the soil only a half-hour after a heavy rain, it slips through your fingers like sand in an hourglass. The climate is dry, and a cool breeze blows down from the Alps to the north.

This is the second “Uvaggio” that contains Nebbiolo from the recently acquired, ninety year-old Tenute Sella vineyard. The wine has a limpid dark garnet color, warming to deep mahogany at the edge. The nose of sweet amarena cherries, pine needles, and dried rose petals is seasoned with a faint suggestion of wild mint and sweet herbs. On the palate, this elegant wine is even finer and more Chambolle-Musigny-like than earlier vintages: polished (and powerful), with deep, mineral-infused red fruit flavors framed in ripe, elegant, fine-grained tannins. Drink now – 2025.
