2012 Lessona, Proprietà Sperino

The 2012 Lessona is simply gorgeous. There are very silky tannins, tightly wound and so fine grained.There’s pure fruit, nice mineral character. And it’s suave too. Love the blood orange character that comes out in the glass. This is delicious and very long, too, with an earthy citrus character.

TASTING NOTES

The 2012 Lessona is a wine that is heavily shaped by the sandy soils that characterize the appellation. This vintage is a little shy and demure with a slightly undertone or softly spoken manner. The wine is extremely elegant and polished with light touches of wild berry followed by ash, cola and finely etched mineral nuances. There is a touch of rusty metal or aromas of dried blood. The mouthfeel is very long and finely textured.
