Winemaking

The grapes from the excellent Cerequio vineyard in La Morra undergo classic fermentation over 3 weeks in steel tanks. The wine is then aged for 12 months in barriques and 18 months in large oak barrels.

Our tasting note

The Sperss has a stringent Nebbiolo character typical for Serralunga: strong, masculine structure and a lot of ripe tannins. The bouquet has dark, precise fruit with classic echoes of cherry, liquorice and light notes of tar.

Gaja

The vineyard Gaja in Barbaresco was founded in 1859 and is managed in the fourth generation by Angelo Gaja since 1961. Angelo Gaja is probably the most well-known Italian vineyard owner internationally. No other winemaker has received the «TreBicchieri» - the highest honour awarded by the Italian wine guide Gambero Rosso - on so many occasions as he has. He has been repeatedly chosen as «Man of the Year» by the magazines Decanter and Winespectator. The success of his wines must be seen in conjunction with Angelo Gaja's charismatic personality. His life is a «goodwill tour» for the family-owned plants. At home in Barbaresco, he enjoys the invaluable energetic support of his wife Lucia, his daughters Gaia and Rossana as well as the gifted winemaker Guido Rivella. Gaja's wines are rooted in tradition, yet embrace modernity. The wines are true to their origin in the misty rolling landscape of Langhe, yet are free of any provincialism.
