This excellent Barolo wine has mineral and berry aromas with hints of undergrowth.
Shows a lot of elegance, tension and structure. Medium-bodied in the mouth with slightly dusty tannins and yet very elegant and rich in finesse. The piquant acidity gives the wine a pleasant freshness. It is already enjoyable to drink and should reach its full potential within a decade.
The vines, which are 45 years old on average, are located in a south-eastern position on a steep slope called Lazzairasco, which belongs to the Cru Lazzarito and is considered one of the top locations in the municipality of Serralunga D'Alba and beyond.
The grapes for this Barolo wine are harvested by hand in October and carefully selected for processing. They are then immediately destemmed and gently pressed in the nearby wine cellar. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, followed by a 2-year aging in large Slovenian oak barrels, followed by a year of bottle aging. The Barolo is ready to drink immediately and for the next 10+ years. The wine goes well with roasts, grilled or roasted red meats and aged hard cheeses. Guido Porro does not use any herbicides, fungicides or pesticides in the vineyard and no additives in the winemaking.
