The 2011 Barolo Lazzarito is a landmark wine and one of the best expressions made region-wide in this challenging vintage. The bouquet is gorgeous thanks to the never-ending aromas of dark fruit, licorice and balsam herb that peel off the top. The Lazzarito vineyard in Serralunga d'Alba is characterized by thick soils and deep shifts between daytime and nighttime temperatures. These are important factors that lead to quality fruit despite the summer heat.

Dense and wiry, the cherry, strawberry, earth and spice flavors are embedded in the chewy tannins. Initially on the austere side, this gains elegance with aeration. Should be tempered by food or time in the cellar. Fine length. Best from 2018 through 2028. 500 cases made.
