About

91

"Perfumed, spicy and open for business (given a respectable decant). Juicy dark cherry, liquorice root, orange peel, dried roses and mint. Medium bodied, supple and fleshy tannin, rolls of sweet cherry, black tea and a rolling tannic finish of fine length. It’s not profound or deep, but does deliver a delicious and approachable dose of Serralunga goodness at a fair price."

Product Description:

"As a fourth-generation Barolista, Guido Porro is well versed in tradition, and it guides his hand in the vineyard and the cellar. This Barolo comes from the Gianetto cru in Serralunga d’Alba with a prime southeastern exposure to catch the morning sun. The Barolos of Serralunga are renowned for their power and longevity, and while Porro’s Gianetto is not the unyielding, tannic beast of old, it will certainly benefit from a few years in your cellar." - Importer
