A courageous ‘wine growing archaeology’ project, that speaks of passion. Proprietà Sperino is the realisation of a dream: to restore the important tradition of Lessona wines by recovering the historic cellars to produce a wine with the greatest respect for local tradition. In the ‘seventies, Paolo De Marchi moved to Tuscany where he founded the wine producing estate Isole & Olena, which played a leading role in the rebirth of Chianti Classico. But his desire was to return to his family origins one day, and indeed in 1999 with his son Luca he did, and once again took the reins of the historic family estate, at the Castle of Lessona in via Sperino.
