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.
Aromas of raspberry compote, baking spice, star anise and menthol follow over to the delicious, full-bodied palate. Tightly woven, velvety tannins provide a firm structure while fresh acidity keeps it beautifully balanced. From Guido Porro's vineyard located in the Lazzarito cru, this still needs time to fully unwind and will age for decades. Drink 2029-2049. Date: April; Rating: 96 Points; Kerin O'Keefe
