The Lessona Riserva is the most grand wine of the estate and 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 parcel of their vineyards. Although Lessona can be produced with a minimum of 85% Nebbiolo, Clerico’s Lessona is produced exclusively from Nebbiolo. Only around 3,000 bottles of this wine are produced.

"The 2012 Lessona Riserva is ample, creamy and voluptuous, and yet it also avoids some of the excess heaviness and ripeness found in other wines of the year. Sweet red cherry, blood orange, mint, dried flowers and anise add aromatic nuance to this super-expressive, nuanced Lessona. Drinking window: 2020 - 2032. 94 points" - Antonio Galloni (Vinous, Aug. 2019)
