  • The grapes are selected from the single vineyard Lazzarito in Serralunga d’Alba, which has 4.500 plants by hectare and with an age of 39 years. The surface is of 1.7 hectares with a low yields of 26 hl/ha. Calcareous-clay soil. The grapes are harvested and gently pressed; their juice ferments for 27 days in stainless steel tanks at 30-32° C (86-90° F). Daily open air pumping-over using the old system of the “submerged cap.” Malolactic fermentation in oak barrels. Lazzarito vineyard is one of the most famous “crus” of Serralunga d’Alba. It’s our most modern interpretation of Barolo. The wine is aged for 7 months in French oak barrels and 25 in Slovenian oak casks. Bottled unfiltered.
  • 96 POINTS! Vinous, 2014 Vintage

    "In many ways, the gorgeous 2014 Barolo Lazzarito is the most surprising wine in the range. Once a stylistic outlier with a considerable French oak influence, today it is much closer to the other Barolos in terms of feel. Deep, dark and intense, with all of the energy of the year very much on display, the Lazzarito is super-expressive and shows a more red-toned profile than is the norm. Kirsch, mint, rose petal and chalk all develop in the glass, while beams of tannin and salinity give the wine shape and persistence. The weight and depth of Serralunga come through on the midpalate and into the finish. Even so, this is in a decidedly laid-back style for Serralunga. In 2014, I especially like the wine's aromatic presence."

    96 POINTS! Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 2013 Vintage

    "The 2013 Barolo Lazzarito shows the power and the intensity of the Serralunga d'Alba township in full force. This is a wine with broad shoulders that carries itself with a confident and proud personality. The wine is infused with dark fruit, blackberry preserves, clove, tar, pipe tobacco, earthy truffle and balsam herb. In terms of Nebbiolo aromas, this wine offers all the classic descriptors. Despite it firmness and the importance of its structure, the wine offers a beautiful degree of richness and succulence that certainly plays in favor of its hedonistic appeal. The Barolo Lazzarito went on the market in March 2017."

    94 POINTS! Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 2012 Vintage

    "This Barolo offers the trademark power and integrity that is so distinctive of wines made in Serralunga d'Alba. The 2012 Barolo Lazzarito delivers muscle, brawn, and an endearing sense of confidence and determination. The is a lovely interpretation that opens to dark fruit aromas that are sharply framed by spice, tobacco, tilled earth and cooling menthol. The overall effect is generous, well-structured and full-bodied. This wine is poised to age over the next twenty years."

    96 POINTS! Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 2011 Vintage

    "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."
