2009 Barolo Lazzairasco, Guido Porro

This vineyard was planted in 1963 and produces full bodied wines of great character. We tasted the 1999 during our trip and that is just starting to open up. I am convinced Guido is making better and better wines every year and cannot recommend them highly enough. The 2009 is relatively approachable with spicy red cherries, a mineral vein and fine-grained tannins; a traditional yet ripe Barolo of great complexity.

2009 Barolo Lazzairasco, 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.
