Indicazione Geografica Tipica Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Isole e Olena 2013 - In the 1970s, the Classico zone of Chianti was in a state of flux. A total reorganization of plantings and expectations for the region led many producers, most notably Paolo De Marchi, to experiment with grape varieties from outside the region in an effort to better understand the relationship between clonal selections and quality. Planting “international” varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, and Chardonnay helped Paolo discover the nobility of the region's native Sangiovese. Along the way, Paolo also proved that his small part of Tuscany could produce world-class wines from more familiar grapes that showcased the unique character of Tuscany.His Cabernet Sauvignon has consistently been recognized as among this most expressive examples grown anywhere. Lengthy, well-resolved tannins complement and balance a soft impression of red currents, toasted anise and sweet earth on the palate.
Chianti Classico Isole e Olena 2014 - Supple, well balanced, and perfumed in every vintage, they have become an illustration for younger producers of what pristine agriculture, high-density vineyards and meticulous fermentation can achieve. Fennel, and porcini-infused earth form the backdrop for fine, black cherry fruit, while silky tannins and mouth-watering fruit acids allow Paolo's wines to linger gracefully on the palate. Roasted sausage and Sugo di Coniglio are natural accompaniments.
Coste della Sesia Rosso Uvaggio Proprietà Sperino 2013 - The wine has a limpid dark garnet color, warming to deep mahogany at the edge. The nose of sweet amarena cherries, pine needles, and dried rose petals is seasoned with a faint suggestion of wild mint and sweet herbs. On the palate, this elegant wine is even finer and more Chambolle-Musigny-like than earlier vintages: polished (and powerful), with deep, mineral-infused red fruit flavors framed in ripe, elegant, fine-grained tannins.
Lessona Proprietà Sperino 2011 - Virtually all Nebbiolo, the Lessona is hand-harvested from two plots, Ormeggio and Castagnola, in the commune of Lessona proper and a third, Cova, in Castello. It is aged for 30 months in barrel and 6 months after bottling. Tar, violet and mushroom aromas highlight intense, pungent black-fruit flavors. Silky and lengthy on the palate, it is superb with cinghiale (wild boar) and cervo (venison).
