This, the most grand wine of the estate, is a selection of Nebbiolo from Clerico’s finest vineyard sites, including the oldest vines of the estate (planted in 1970) in the “Vigna Gaja”. Although Lessona can be produced with a minimum of 85% Nebbiolo, Clerico’s Lessona is produced exclusively from Nebbiolo. Again, the rules of the DOC require a minimum of two years of aging before release, one of which must be in barrel; but, Clerico’s wines are aged at least 30 months (and often longer depending on the structure of the vintage **) in barrels of French oak origin before being bottled. The elegance and refinement of Clerico’s Lessona is manifest, providing another unique rendition of the complexity of the Nebbiolo grape.
