|Region:||Italy / Piemonte / Barolo / Serralunga|
Guido Porro, of Serralunga, is one of my favourite Barolo producers. A modest farmer, growing only about 5ha of Barolo-dedicated grapes, most of which come from the two monopole vineyards Santa Caterina and Lazzariasco. Often overlooked and offering a fantastic price/quality option, his wines are very typical to the terroir, honest and non-flashy. Somewhat rustic, perhaps, but, once again, this is what I would expect from Serralunga – dusty, earthy, savory, deep and wonderfully structured.
