Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
A gorgeous return to conventional Barolo, the muscular ’13 Sperss layers its crisp red and succulent black fruits with pencil lead, fresh loam, black truffles, dark spices, and ethereal rose petals. This is a radiant Barolo that unfolds its myriad layers with deftness and vigor, revealing fine-grained, austere tannins and vivid acidity as it rolls to its dazzling crescendo. Once called a Langhe DOC owing to its Barbera component, Sperss is, as of the 2013 vintage, a DOCG Barolo--and it’s an intense, highly satisfying return to conventional Barolo. In 1988, Gaja purchased the Sperss vineyard in Barolo, which sits on the historic and celebrated Marenca-Rivetta site in Serralunga; this wine is Angelo's most brooding and concentrated expression. Grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel for three weeks; then the wine ages in both barrique and botti before bottling.
