VITICULTURE / VINIFICATION

•Grapes are hand-harvested
•Fermentations with indigenous yeasts in concrete vats and stainless steel tanks
•Two pumpovers daily during fermentation as well as 1-2 délestages total
Vigna l’Pari, Vigna Santa Caterina, and Vigna Lazzairasco are sub-parcels owned exclusively by Porro within the cru Lazzarito
•Cellar windows are left open during winter months to achieve a natural clarification and cold stabilization
•Barolos moved to wood after spending winter in tank stabilizing; this minimizes the need for racking during élevage
•Barolos are aged for 3 years in neutral 25-hL Slavonian oak botti
•Wines are bottled unfiltered
