Guido Porro, Nebbiolo, Barolo Vigna Rionda, Piedmont 2015
In the land of Barolo, in Serralunga d'Alba, under the shadow of the castle, there are some of the most important vineyards in the world. There are those of the Porro family - Lazairasco, Santa Caterina and 'l Pari - in the Lazzarito cru, in an enviable position. Exposed to the south-west and south-east, the vines get the best sun in the Langa and produce Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera.
Many times, however, a place blessed with good luck and splendid vineyards are not enough to make quality wine. A strong commitment must also be put into it, meticulous work between the rows, loving care of each vine and its soil. All this proves that the quality that we find in the bottle is born, for the most part, already in the middle of the vineyards, before continuing its course in the cellar.
A solid family history behind him, a lot of work, a lot of passion, a fine expertise, acquired by learning, from an early age, between rows and barrels: all this has marked the path of Guido Porro from an early age, as well as that of his father Giovanni, of his grandfather Guido and his grandfather's father.
A visit to the cellar, just renovated and enlarged, built on top of its vineyards and from which you can enjoy a panorama that embraces winy hills and snow-capped mountains, is a real pleasure. Let yourself be told the story contained in that glass, feel its aromas, taste it without haste. You will return.
