Isole e Olena owner Paolo di Marchi is looking back to his family's winemaking roots in Alto Piedmonte. This brilliant 8.5 hectare hillside estate is situated in the small town of Lessona, near Biella in northern Piemonte. It passed into the De Marchi family through their relative, Felice Sperino, a passionate viticulturist and professor in Turin and Paolo took over the Sperino estate in 1999 with dreams of revitalising the property and realising the dream of returning to his family’s origins. 

Paolo farms his vines from the regions Pliocene marine sands at around 300 metres above sea level. The varieties are Nebbiolo for the Lessona DOC, with the addition of Vespolina and Croatina for the Uvaggio Costa della Sesia DOC. The wines are consistently superb and very Burgundian in style, light in colour yet intense, scented and long. 

Tasting Note:
A blend of 80% Nebbiolo, 15% Vespolina and 5% Croatina. The grapes are sorted then de-stemmed and gently pressed before being fed by gravity into tank with natural yeasts and open topped wood. Skin maceration lasts 23 days, with regular punching down of the cap and remaining 12 months on its lees to build texture and harmony. The wine ages in barrique and barrels for circa 22 months. Further ageing in bottle before release.

This wine has a vibrant ruby red colour, with youthful perfumes and packed full of rich cherry and plum fruit. Extremely morish on the palate with bright acidity, soft silky tannins and there is a spicy, herbal lift here combined with attractive juicy fruit and is given great texture by the supple, approachable tannins and savoury finish. 

This is a Dry, Medium+ bodied wine with High acidity and Medium+ tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium finish.
