The lower part of the Lazzarito, separated from the rest of the vineyard by a country road, is traditionally recognized as Lazzariasco. This small vineyard (less than 2 hectares) is situated between 300m and 350m.a.s.l. and produces great wines due to its exposition (south/south-east). Lazzariasco proves to be one of the best mesoclimates for growing Nebbiolo. Protected from the winds by the highest part of the hill, in the middle of a basin where in summer the weather is boiling hot, this cru concentrates all the characteristics of a great Barolo vineyard. Locals and winegrowers have long recognized Lazzariasco as exceptional, and that Porro’s portion of the vineyards is the best of the best.
