Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep/Drink

ABV:
14 %

Notes

Crisp, crunchy fruits mixed with earthier, warming notes of spice. Touches of undergrowth, hedgerow berry, cinnamon and cedar. A broad, textural style of Barolo. Only 400 magnums were made. A very small plot next to Cerequio situated at 220 to 240 metres altitude. As the Voerzios have tiny holdings here there is not enough wine to fill the large casks so, unlike the other crus, the wine is aged only in small oak barriques, 25% of which are new.

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.
