The 2019 Sperino Rosa del Rosa is stunning, opening to reveal depths of ripe peach and strawberry, with hints of cumin, ginger, dried orange, and roses. It floods the palate with silky textures, tugging at the cheeks as zesty acids settle in, then soothing through sweet liquid florals and ripe fruit. The finish is long, showing a hint of fine tannins, yet not austere; instead tactile, perfectly balanced with a hint of savory spice and just begging me to take another sip. This is a blend of Nebbiolo and Vespolina, which is gorgeous right now, but it may even get better with a little time in the cellar. Frankly, it was hard to put the glass down.

Some nice earthiness, and the tannins are mellowed enough to really taste some fruit. Definitely drinking at the right time! For the price point this is a great wine. Excited to see how it opens up over the course of the evening. — 23 days ago
Rose petals and cedar on the nose. Tannins are rounding nicely. Red and black fruits, will gain complexity with age. Excellent choice from Alta Piemonte — 3 months ago
First red wine at Table #3 at Oakton Wine Shops Bucket List Tasting.
Deep garnet red. Lots of earthy and cherry notes on the nose. Medium plus tannins (6.5/10) and medium bodied. Layered palate with dark berries, dark crushed rocks, black pepper, and bell peppers. Solid acidity with a long and lingering finish. Definitely will beef up with some time and a big food wine. Drink till 2029.
Aged for 40 months in 50% new French oak barriques. — 3 years ago
