The estate is owned by Paolo de Marchi who inherited it from his grandfather. Paolo de Marchi is considered one of Tuscany's finest winemakers and additionally owns Isole e Olena which produces very highly regarded Chianti Classico. With the help of his elder son, Luca, Paolo has restored Proprietà Sperino back to a fully functioning wine estate.
In 1999, Paolo and Luca started work on the restoration and by 2006 the first vintage, a 2004, was released. The vineyards cover eight hectares with plots in the Belvedere, Ormeggio, Castagnola, Rava, Covà and Madonna degli Angeli vineyards. Most of the vineyards have yellow sandy soils and are managed using traditional methods with little in the way of herbicides or chemical fertilizers.
This traditional approach also extends to the winemaking with vinification and fermentation taking place largely in tanks with the wine then aged in both barrel and then bottle.
