The 2008 Barolo Vigna S. Caterina is the more accessible and fruit-driven of Porro’s two Baroli. Dark red cherries flowers and sweet spices literally jump from the glass in a wine that is both extroverted and imbued with a cool sense of classicism. The wine’s relatively upfront personality makes it a great choice for restaurant drinking. There is an immediacy here that is simply fabulous. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2023.
