2005 Barolo Vigna Santa Caterina, Guido Porro

A floral aspect dominates the nose, indicating its traditional roots, as does its relatively pale colour. However, the palate is ripe, round and flowing, with bright acidity and fine-grained tannins adding to the vibrancy of this wine. There is a slightly earthy aspect to the palate, which is a useful counterpoint to the ripe fruit. This is almost approachable now, but will keep for some time.

2005 Barolo Vigna Santa Caterina, Guido Porro
Guido Porro

Guido Porro’s tiny winery has been passed from father to son for four generations. It was only in the 1980s that they started bottling their own Barolos, rather than selling the grapes on to the local cooperative. Their wines are perfect for anyone who loves traditional Barolo. Not beholden to trends or fads, Guido lets his wines take their own shape as top Barolo has done for years. He uses large oak barrels and lets his wines age as long as they need. There’s nothing rushed here.
