2009 Proprieta Sperino "Uvaggio" Costa della Sesia

SKU #1132243 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2009 Uvaggio boasts compelling inner sweetness and layers of perfumed fruit. This is an especially juicy, radiant wine for this part of northern Piedmont, but at the same time, the trademark Lessona acidity keeps things in check. Sweet floral notes resonate on the finish. This is pure class and elegance. What an impressive wine. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019. The De Marchi family’s winery in their native Lessona continues its ascent into the upper echelon of Italian wine. These two new releases are absolutely fantastic.  (10/ 2012)

This super bottle of wine hails from the Northern Piedmont village of Lessona and is composed of 70% Nebbiolo, 15% Vespolina and 15% Croatina. I loved the generous, red rose aromatics of this wine and full dark fruit on the palate. This wine has some good black tea tannin, but just the right amount for drinking now with some hardy fair. I can't wait to have a bottle of this with some crock pot short ribs!
Drink from 2014 to 2025

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.

Sub-Region:

Piedmont

- Piedmont is in the Northwestern region of Italy, bordering France and Switzerland. Piedmont is predominantly a plain where the water flows from the Swiss and French Alps to form the headwaters of the Po river. The major wine producing areas are in the southern portion of the region in the hills known as the "Langhe". Here the people speak a dialect that is 1/3 French and 2/3 Italian that portrays their historical roots. Their cuisine is one of the most creative and interesting in Italy. Nebbiolo is the King grape here, producing Barolo and Barbaresco. In addition, the Barbera and Dolcetto are the workhorse grapes that produce the largest quantity of wine. Piedmont is predominantly a red wine producing area. There are a few whites made in Piedmont, and the Moscato grape produces a large volume of sweet, semi-sweet and sparkling wines as well.
