Another check in with this bottle. Really good side by side with a great young Barbaresco. Polar opposite wines.

Nice wine. Lessona is one of the 7 sub zones of the Alto-Piedmonte. Volcanic soils at about 700-1200ft of elevation. There is roughly 80 acres total planted in Lessona. Clerico is the 3rd largest producer with 5(?) acres they have been farming since the 1740’s. 100% Nebbiolo, called Spanna locally. Aged 30 months in Oak and 16 months in bottle prior to release.

Outstanding. Decant for 60 minutes. “...dark cherry and currant fruit...This is an absolutely superb expression of Nebbiolo.” - Ian Cauble, SommSelect
