When Italy was unified into one country in 1861, Camillo Cavour, the Prime Minister who had built the country, had wine from Lessona served at the celebration gala banquet. In his view, it was the highest expression of wine from (Northern) Italy. This Lessona is a superfine, elegant Nebbiolo, which in every sense lives up to its fame. With its intense nose, potent tannic structure, it will live a long life and perfect its wealth of aromas. Viola, red roses, lots of blood orange and tamarind, it grows with each sip. The initial freshness may be slightly misleading, as the still rustic tannic structure delivers a robe of ripe fruit when stimulating the palate, opening the way for a long, elegant finish. It will lose its rough edge in time and become truly splendid and unique!
