Guido Porro Barolo V S Caterina 2016

“I have been excited about Guido Porro’s 2008s since I first tasted them from barrel last year. The bottled wines live up to all the promise I sensed back then. They also happen to be among the most fairly priced Baroli readers will come across in today’s market. Porro’s vineyards are in Serralunga, where Baroli tend to be quite powerful, but here the wines are delicate, perfumed and refined, all in a classic, traditional style built on transparency and weightlessness. Guido Porro remains one of the most underrated growers in Serralunga.”

About This Wine...

 

There is a small area in the Lazzarito cru—towards the Serralunga side—called Santa Caterina. Only part of this vineyard, taking its name from the neighboring farm, is cultivated with Nebbiolo and faces south-west. The vines slope dramatically downward from the state road on healthy soils that tends to be richer than the soils that receive the most direct sunlight in the region. The value of this kind of vineyards is linked to the ability of the vines to produce excellent wines even during dry years. The small area is only 5 piedmontese “giornate” big (less than 2 hectares) and stands between 340 and 390 m.a.s.l.

“The Barolo Vigna S. Caterina is the more accessible and fruit-driven of Porro’s Baroli. Dark red cherries flowers and sweet spices literally jump from the glass in a wine that is both extroverted and imbued with a cool sense of classicism. The wine’s relatively upfront personality makes it a great choice for restaurant drinking. There is an immediacy here that is simply fabulous.”
