2006 Barolo Vigna Santa Caterina, Guido Porro

Guido Porro has two vineyards in front of the family home in the heart of Serralunga, from which he produces five superb wines. This is a gem of a wine and excellent value for money. Fragrant on the nose, with notes of plum and a touch of crushed garden herbs. A core of red berry fruit is given structure and definition by ripe, structural tannins and a vein of mineral freshness. An attractive and elegant Barolo.

2006 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.
