Notes

Sarmassa is on the same hill and has the same exposure to the sun as Cerequio but is just over the border in the Barolo commune as opposed to La Morra. Only 800 magnums of this were produced. Absolutely exquisite. Elegant and sweet-fruited but certainly not fragile, beautiful cherry, damson, griotte, sloe and strawberries and cream fruit flavours with a strong rock salt dimension, an immediately alluring and very moreish Barolo. Stunning.

Notes
Voerzio's 2006 Barolo Sarmassa di Barolo (magnum) literally explodes on the palate with red fruit, flowers, spices and mint. Still tightly wound, the 2006 is an especially powerful Sarmassa di Barolo that isn't quite as accessible as it often is at this stage. Still, the wine's bouquet, purity of fruit and persistence all augur for a long life of magnificent drinking.

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.
