Wine Description

On the palate Sperss is intense: full-bodied with black fruits, tobacco, dark-earth and a velvet-smooth finish. This is a powerful wine with great fruit, balanced tannin and nice acidity.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2005 Vintage) Good medium red. Classic Serralunga aromas of redcurrant, menthol, tobacco and licorice. Offers much more clarity and cut than the Conteisa, and more inner-mouth perfume in spite of its more medicinal Serralunga character. Strong minerality adds to the impression of lift and structure. Plenty of hidden density here, especially impressive in the context of the vintage. Finishes broad, long and aromatic.
