A top-class Barolo single-vineyard wine with high aging potential. Great elegance, complexity and balance
The very steep Vigna Rionda vineyard is one of the most renowned Serralunga D'Alba sites and is planted with old vines. The yield of these vines is relatively low, but the berries have it when they reach optimal maturity have very high quality. The Porro family of winegrowers has owned a small area of vines on this vineyard for years and presses an excellent Barolo single-vineyard wine from the Nebbiolo grapes.
The grapes are usually picked by hand in October of each year. The grapes are carefully selected and then immediately fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The expansion then takes place in large oak barrels and lasts 30 months. Then the wine is stored in the bottle for another year before it is finally sold.
This Barolo Vigna Rionda 2015 by Guido Porro is a fantastic Barolo with complex fruity, berry and balsamic aromas. In the mouth, it shows power and density, but also an incredible freshness, elegance and velvetiness. The acid is pleasantly present and the tannin is wonderfully fine-grained and robust. The harmony, balance and liveliness of this Barolos is incredibly impressive.
The wine is ready to drink immediately, but if stored correctly, it can develop and retain its great potential over several decades. A perfect accompaniment to roasts, red meat, game and mature cheeses.
