Tasting Note:

A high altitude vineyard that shows in the style of its wines. An energetic Barolo, a little coy at first but the wine just gets better and better the longer it is open. Crisp cherry-dominated fruit, wonderfully vibrant bittersweet flavours - crunchy morello characteristics with a firm stony mineral undertow. There is such pulse and vibrancy to this dark fruited wine, the tannins are taut and finely etched which add a seamless structure to the fruit. Envigorating fruity and cleansing, as vibrant and energising a 2017 as you’ll fined. Stunning. This is Voerzio’s highest Barolo vineyard, situated in the commune of La Morra, at between 380 to 430 metres above sea level with great east south-east exposure . 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.)
