Guido Porro is one of the greatest Barolo producers in Serralunga d'Alba, a commune in Barolo known for its powerful and structured wines. Guido Porro however, is famous for achieving elegance and grace - an Australian colleague always refers to these wines as demure, which seems perfect. They are such a perfect rendering of the terroir, with old school methods strictly adhered to. The Lazzarito Cru contains two of Guido’s vineyards, but they are so different that he sees them as two distinct Cru.

The first, Santa Caterina lies at the top end of the site beside the Porro farmhouse, elevated to 400m and well drained, with a western exposure. 
The western exposure provides great fresh acidity. There is an old school, savoury austerity to this wine, but with all of the terroir driven minerality and that line of freshness it soars, and the rustic tannins give it lovely lines and definition. It somehow manages to be balls out and demure at the same time. Killer wine. 10 or more years if desired. STSWine

At the far end of Porro’s Lazzarito Cru is the Lazzairasco vineyard. The Lazzarito unfurls into a flat amphitheatre with a south western exposure, enabling the perfect suntrap. While the signature demure style is very apparent, this is certainly the most robust, lush and powerful Barolo - the most Serralunga of his Baroli. This wine is a frequent winner of 'tre bicchiere' from the Gambera Rosso and has always been the most well known of his wines. The key to Lazz. has always been the dark powerful core of Nebbiolo fruit, and everything builds out from this epicentre. Rustic red fruits remain but this wine is all about leather, tobacco and dried herb. The structure seems to work in harmony, acid and tannin forms a tapestry to support the dense fruit. This wine tends to really move in the glass. One to drink slowly and ponder how special Barolo is. Will go on for 10 or 15 years more. STSWine
