The Wine
The 2009 L'Franc, 100% Cabernet Franc, is a new wine from Sperino. Over the years, Paolo De Marchi has proved he has the magic touch pretty much with every grape. You can add Cabernet Franc to the list. Here in its debut vintage, the L'Franc possesses remarkable varietal definition and finesse from start to finish. Violets, lavender, plums and mocha add further shades of nuance as the 2009 opens up. Amazingly, this fruit was not harvested until late October and into early November. In my view the 2009 is a bit overoaked, but that will simply require a small correction in future vintages. Superb Cabernet Franc in Lessona? Yes, at Proprietà Sperino, it is possible. Drinking window: 2017-2031

Proprieta Sperino is located in the small town of Lessona, near Biella, in the foothills of the Alps of Northern Piemonte. This is a region that boasts a long viticultural tradition and by the end of the 19th century, more than 40,000 hectares of vine were planted in this area.
