2011 Barolo “Gianetto”

Guido Porro

2011 Barolo “Gianetto” Guido Porro - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



A longtime stalwart of traditionally produced Barolo, Guido Porro has added a new wine to his portfolio: this 2011 marks the first release from Gianetto, a southeast-facing vineyard in Guido’s hometown of Serralunga d’Alba. After a spontaneous fermentation and three years aging in massive Slavonian oak casks, this Nebbiolo is finally ready to go. Rather shocking for a four-year-old Barolo, it is already beautifully expressive, flaunting a wide-open perfume of silky rose petals and voluptuous fresh raspberry. Even the palate is uncommonly friendly for such a young wine of this pedigree, its tannic structure overshadowed by an invitingly supple mouthfeel that begs for immediate consumption. The young vines—Guido’s Gianetto plantings are only eight years old—might explain this wine’s approachability, even if further aging is certainly an option. However, nobody would call you crazy if you cracked into this delicious, fresh young Barolo right away. –Anthony Lynch
