Vinoble is proud to be the importer of Proprieta Sperino Hong Kong. The winery is the realisation of a dream. Paolo De Marchi, though already established at Isole e Olena, always had the desire to return to the once important wine making tradition of Lessona, by restoring the historical family estate together with his son Luca. Situated at the foot of Northern Piedmont pre-alpine hills, the soil of Lessona still contains ancient marine sands, making it one of the most acidic in the world of wine production (pH 4.5 - 5.5). This allows the roots of the vines to explore deep into the ground and absorb minerals in quantities impossible in other conditions. The climate is dry, and generous light, and cool night breezes from the Alps to the north mitigate the hot summer days. This ensures a long growing season, which results in Nebbiolo wines with fine flavours, mature tannins and a long mineral and savoury finish. The vineyards have never seen herbicides or chemical fertilizers, and are managed with sustainable techinques. The wines are made in full respect of local tradition.
