Lazzarito is very powerful, very intense, very masculine Barolo with a beautiful nose of tea leaves, herbal note that is very characteristic of the terroir of Serralunga. Pair with game, red meats, cheese
97 Points - Decanter Lazzarito is a majestic cru in Serralunga, and this sees 30 months in barriques and large barrels, offering unmistakable personality in a ‘third way’ Barolo, a balancing act between ageability and early approachability. Aromatic, tight-knit fruit, forest floor, tobacco and liquorice. Tannins in a state of grace. Assured longevity.
95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate This wine represents a tremendous effort. The 2014 Barolo Lazzarito is a powerhouse Nebbiolo. Luca Currado tells me that this is one of the best vintages he has ever made. I felt it important to record his comment here because it comes as a very refreshing affirmation given all the controversy and naysaying that surrounds the 2014 vintage. Lazzarito vines sit in a shallow amphitheater that tends to lock in the summer heat. Indeed, this vineyard site suffers most in the scorching hot years and performs best in the coolest years. The bouquet is opulent and bold with black fruit and distinct traces of sweet chocolate and espresso. The mouthfeel is succulent and rich in natural fruit fiber and sweet tannins.
