2011 Barolo, Lazzarito, Vietti

Serralunga d'Alba, Piedmont

$148.00 $125.00 per Bottle


4 Bottles




"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. I tasted 1,200 wines during my stay in Piedmont and can say without a doubt that no wine impressed me more than Vietti's 2007 Barolo Riserva Villero. I remember the wine vividly as if I had a glass in front of me now. In fact, I have not been able to shake the memory of the wine's profound beauty. It is etched deep into my tasting memory. Luca Currado is an immensely talented winemaker and I am absolutely convinced that this is the finest bottle he has made to date. It is the culmination of a career that is only partially complete, and this is great news for all of us who admire his work. It is a symbol of the promise to come."

"The 2011 Barolo Lazzarito is fabulous in this vintage. Rich, ample and structured, the 2011 is both opulent and savory in style. Iron, plums, dark red cherries, smoke, licorice and tobacco meld together in a remarkably harmonious young Serralunga Barolo. This is the first year the Vietti Lazzarito includes a second recently acquired parcel, which may be one of the factors that influences quality, but at the same time, the Lazzarito has been the most improved Barolo in the range. All the elements come together in the 2011, a wine that has it all. This is a great showing from the Lazzarito. Best of all, readers won't have to wait forever to enjoy this beautiful, pedigreed Barolo." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Lots of gorgeous fruit here with dried berry and walnut plus hints of hazelnuts. Full body, integrated tannins and a clean, fresh finish. Very youthful and direct. Give it two or three years of bottle age." JamesSuckling.com

"Just mid ruby with broad orange-tinged rim. Complex sweet cherry and garden herbs on the nose. Almost a little exotic and certainly attention grabbing. Really tight palate walking a tight, but convincing, rope of fine ripe fruit and rich tannins and just the right amount acidity. Chewy and tactile and long. Impressive cru and masterfully executed."
