TASTING NOTES

"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."

"Rich, with a chewy texture and flavors of cherry, licorice, menthol, wild herbs and tar. Fresh, powerful and balanced, this should be terrific in due time. Best from 2020 through 2036. 500 cases made." Wine Spectator

"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." JamesSuckling.com
