Winemaking: 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.

Aging: The wine is aged for 7 months in French oak barrels and 25 in Slovenian oak casks. Bottled unfiltered on July 2015.

Description: Deep garnet red in color. Richly rounded with a robust and velvety texture; intensely aromatic with hints of figs and plums. Elegant with soft and sweet tannins, followed by a long finish.

“The 2012 Barolo Lazzarito impresses for its precision and class, two qualities that aren’t easy to find in wines from this Serralunga site. Iron, smoke and white pepper lift from the glass in a vertical, structured Barolo endowed with real pedigree. A rush of pomegranate, red cherry jam, wild flowers and blood orange meld into the huge, bright finish. In 2012, the Lazzarito reconciles power and finesse like few vintages in the past. For the last few years, the Lazzarito has been knocking on the door of the big boys in this lineup, the Rocche and Ravera. Today, the Lazzarito makes a strong statement that it has arrived.” (Vinous – Antonio Galloni – March 2016)

Internation Wine ReviewThe 2012 'Lazzarito' is another drop-dead gorgeous Barolo from Luca Currado in this vintage. Lazzarito vineyard is one of the most famous crus of Serralunga. The 2012 was aged for 7 months in French oak barrels and 25 in Slovenian oak casks. As it begins to open it releases beautiful aromas of ripe strawberries and cherries woven together with dried floral, smoke, mint and crushed stones all coming together and soaring from the glass. This demonstrates wonderful depth with a gorgeous velvety texture and remarkable overall balance and finesse with a beautifully polished frame. It continues to impress with its wonderful precision and focus, as everything comes together and bursts on to the ultra-long finish. Today, the Lazzarito already shows incredible early appeal, and seems to be to most accessible of all the cru's from Vietti, but its still safe to say it will ultimately be most compelling as it evolves over the next decade and beyond.

James Suckling A full-bodied red with chocolate, mineral, and plum character. Firm and silky. Medium finish. Tight and shy at the moment. Give it a year to two to open
