The Lazzarito Cru contains two of Guido’s vineyards, but they are so distinct 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. This moves up a gear in terms of power and structure from Gianetto.

Typical Porro elegance and grace - an Australian colleague always refers to these wines as demure, which seems perfect. 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. Killer wine. 10 or more years if desired. STSWine
