Description

Sperss is already expressive and enjoyable, it shows its muscles but not without finesse. Climate and harvest Highly favorable climate conditions throughout all the year (snow in winter, rain in spring, a perfect summer) favored a high quality. The peak temperature during varaison and few rain showers between August and September were further optimal conditions for a great vintage. 2015 quality shows its best from Serralunga, where the compact clay befitted the hot summer providing structure and pleasantness into the wines. Vineyards The Sperss vineyard is located in the Marenca-Rivette sub-area in the municipality of Serralunga. The land, arranged as an amphitheatre on a surface of 12 hectares, consists of very compact clayey-calcareous marls and has south and south-west exposure with an average altitude of 370 m above the sea level. The vines are 55 years old on average. First vintage produced 1988.

Aroma

It shows vibrant and intense hints on the nose, mainly herbs and spices: thyme, cloves, black pepper and a dash of smoke.

Taste

A vortex of dark and ripe fruits envelop the palate, like prunes and black cherries. An interesting note of lemon marmalade is surprising. Extremely approachable in its youth, although supported by a powerful structure, with a vibrant and deep finish.
