    Roberto Voerzio, Nebbiolo, Langhe, 2021
    Antonio Galloni, Vinous
    The 2008 Langhe Nebbiolo is insanely beautiful. Dark red fruit, rose petals, licorice and tar are some of the notes that flow from this classic, nuanced Nebbiolo. The wine has a little extra sweetness and depth that is the hallmark of the house style, all in a gorgeous, wonderfully complete package. An intense, focused finish rounds things out in style.

    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.
