Guido Porro Barolo Vigna Lazzairasco
~ Editor's Choice ~
 
More direct on the nose, which is really enticing with a slightly dusty, tea leaf, medicinal, and faintly woodsy aspect to the big  prune in alcohol aromas. This is more open on the palate with that little woodsy, note accenting the core of dark cherry and plum fruit.  This falls somewhere in the middle of the vintage stylistically with soft tannins, nice depth of fruit, and an excellent open feel, al leading to  nice tension on the finish which shows dusty tannins and  big licorice aromas, A second bottle which had been opened ten days prior Shows some evolution with a spicy, mushroom and camphor framed core of  wild macerated raspberry fruit. This really broadens on the palate and sweetness up in the mouth with excellent late arriving depth of herb flecked macerated cherry and plum fruit, finishes with full tannins that are a touch dry, An aggregate score for the two bottles: 93pts ~ GDP ~
