Popped and poured. The 2015 Lessona from Proprieta Sperino is absolutely singing right now; pretty much right out of the gate. The solar nature of the vintage is on full display but the elegance of Lessona is still there. Bright garnet color with a transparent core; medium viscosity with no staining of the tears and no signs of sediment. On the nose, bright, ripe red fruits: cherries, strawberries and raspberries with red flowers, dried herbs and minerals. On the palate, the wine is dry with silky medium+ tannins and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. Lovely texture! The finish is long and delicious. Drinking well now and should do so for at least another 7+ years.

Popped and poured; consumed over a three hour period. No formal notes. The 2015 Propriety Sperino “Lessona” pours a more ruddy color; more ruby than garnet and little signs of color oxidization. On the nose, the wine is initially reductive but that blows off after a few minutes revealing bright, crunchy red fruits; cherries cranberries and pomegranate with red flowers, dried herbs and stony minerals. On the palate, the wine is bone dry with firm structure. This really improved with air. The finish is long and the texture is gorgeous. This is a classy expression of Nebbiolo that gave me the impression that the best is yet to come. Drink now with patience but beat after 2025 and through 2035+

Nice light Nebbiolo that was perfect with cheese and crackers. Not a special wine but good for this limited purpose.
