Tasting Note:

Bold clear, and chunky fruit flavours of bramble, sloe and loganberry. Intense, mouth filling and powerful, this is lifted by wonderful fresh herb, menthol and eucalyptus notes along side darker suggestions of liquorice. Lazzarito is from the Serralunga commune and is Vietti’s biggest single holding, at 2.5 hectares, however they still only produce 6000 bottles for the single cru cuvée itself. The vines are planted on a chalk clay soil with lower natural acid than the other cuvees resulting in a dense but smooth wine.
