Tasting Note:

This offers up an immediate fresh and floral mix of red and black fruit notes of raspberries and loganberries. There is a nicely judged blend of high-toned flowery notes and a more baritone earthiness. Excellent crisp fruit with a nice crunch to it. Lifted and precise. This used to be a blend of Crus including one-third of the Boiolo Cru, however as of 2017 this comes exclusively from some of their top single vineyards La Serra, Fossati and Case Nere. The vines are grown in the typically Voerzio way high density and low yielding – just a kilo of fruit per vine. The plots are all co-harvested and fermented. Intense but tight-knit initially but after a bit of coaxing the very La Morra style fruit is unlocked. Aged for two years in a mix of big and small barrels, light toast, French oak (15, 20, 30 and 35 HL sizes for the big barrels.)
