Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Roberto Voerzio, Barolo, Cerequio, 2020

Cerequio centres on sensual, ripe red fruits, sandalwood spice and sweet flowers, coaxed by velvety tannins and a burst of liqueur cherries and stones. The 2020 has an impressive talc-like tannic grip and minerality. One of the historic single vineyards of La Morra, south-facing and planted at 300 metres above sea level on sandy clay soils. Sarmassa is the lower continuation of Cerequio.

Roberto Voerzio

Roberto Voerzio

Roberto Voerzio is undeniably one of the stars of Piedmont and a Barolo producer with a world-wide following, his philosophy is a simple one; from the healthiest lowest-yielding vines, in the greatest plots, come the very finest wines. His vineyard management is meticulous and covers hard pruning, green harvesting, pruning, and leaf thinning which, together with his policy of having high planting density, result in an exceptionally small production. The yields are the lowest in the region, 500g of fruit per vine for the crus and even 1kg per vine for Dolcetto and Barberas - the yield of most top growers' best Barlo Crus. In the winery Roberto's vision is to make the purest expression of Nebbiolo as possible. Fermentations are with wild yeasts, extractions are very gentle using the light "pumping over" technique, elevage takes place in both french oak with a maximum of 30% new, both large casks and barriques. The wines are an exquisite mix of intensity and lightness, measured concentration and bright juicy, moreish flavours. The Voerzios are not afraid to reject a cuvée either, if hail or a fermentation deviation prevents quality from being tip top, as with Cerequio in 2011 and La Serra in 2006. Some of Italy's greatest wines.
