Massimo Clerico 'Ca' Du Leria' Coste Della Sesia Rosso DOC 2015
This product is currently sold out.
A sublime bottling that is quite the journey over 4 days if you have the patience. This single hectare delivers immense value as it transmits Lessona's unparalled, narrow terroir (ancient sandy marine soils and a wet, cool climate) through the voice of Massimo's very old Nebbiolo/Croatina/Vespolina vines. With air this Massimo Clerico 'Ca' Du Leria' Coste Della Sesia Rosso DOC 2015 wine sometimes feels weightless, showing starkly pure wild strawberries, pepper and herbs with acidity pushing to a fitting finish.
"Dark cherry, raspberry, smoked meat and dried herbs. It’s firm in acidity, meaty with red and black fruit, chamois-like tannin, orange and peel brightness, tight and ‘minerally’, smoky and peppery finish of good length. Distinctive. A little wild, but very good. Engaging." Gary Walsh - The Wine Front
