We're sorry for any inconvenience and will do what we can to fill your order!

"From Serralunga, this has a classic fragrance of wild cherry, rose petal, truffle, leather and hints of menthol. The palate delivers a juicy core of black cherry, mint and spice. It has a warm midpalate and big but ripe tannins, but itâs a bit shy on acidity - typical for the vintage. -KO" (09/13)
"Age of vines: 40-45 years. Vines are sustainably farmed, the equivalent of lutte raisonnee in France. Only indigenous yeasts are used, almost all barrels used (barriques, tonneaux, and botti) are at least 5th passage; new barrels are introduced occasionally as needed. Maceration in cement vats 20-25 days; pumping over 3-4 times daily. Three years in 15- to 25-hl Slavonian oak botti. The Lazzairasco, Santa Caterina, and l'Pari vineyards are all monopolies. Lazzairasco and Santa Caterina are both vineyards in the Lazzarito cru of Barolo. Lazzairasco: 380 m altitude; SW exposure. Santa Caterina: 400-410 m altitude; W exposure. The difference between the Barolos is due primarily to the ages of the vines." -Importer
"Reviews and notes on Guido Porro regularly refer to him as "under the radar": the wines he makes are worthy of a stellar reputation, but he is too easygoing and unassuming to worry about whether the general wine-drinking public recognizes his name. He rarely bothers to send samples to wine writers. Guido is the fourth generation at an estate that has always been passed from father to son, and although fifth-generation Fabio hasn't reached middle school, he is already showing a keen curiosity in the family business. The Porros continue to work just as their predecessors did - the only major change over the last few decades has been the decision to bottle at the estate instead of selling the wine in demijohns or barrels - and they like to keep things simple and down to earth. The door is always open, and Guido's wife Giovanna never looks quite as happy as when she's serving enormous platters of classic local dishes to a full table of guests." -Importer
