Notes

This was a great surprise to taste after a line of 2015s. Standing up to the impressive, warmer 2015 vintage, this offered beautifully delineated, bright refreshing fruit. Finely poised and racy but with a lovely sweetness of fruit and unexpectedly suave tannin quality. Vibrant, clear flavours of flowers, blueberry, loganberry and strawberry with sweet spicy tones offset by mouth-watering saltiness Blemded with Rocche dell Annunziata until 2010 this has since been ill be bottled up separately in magnums only and released a year later than the other Crus. From a small hill just below Rocche dell’Annunziata that produces powerful classically-styled Barolos. Like the Sarmassa the wine is aged differently to the other crus, for 24 months in 25% new oak barriques rather than in a mixture of barriques and 20hl wooden vats.

Notes
The 2014 Barolo Torriglione, tasted from magnum, is a very beautiful wine. The aromatics alone are exquisite. Dried flowers, mint, sweet red berry fruit, tobacco and licorice all grace this beguiling and expressive Barolo. All the elements come together so effortlessly. Slightly nervous tannins give the 2014 a real sense of vibrancy. It's a wonderful wine in a very challenging vintage. Available only in magnum.

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.
