Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90(+?)

Medium red. Highly aromatic nose of amarena cherry, brown spices, and vanilla. Pliant, rich and smoky in the mouth, but not as vibrant as the '96. Notes of cherry and licorice. The rather substantial tannins are less buffered by middle palate fat than those of the '96. This wine will shut down in the bottle in a few months, says Voerzio, who notes that his Barolos normally need four or five years of cellaring following the bottling.

About This Producer


For years considered an oddity in Piedmont, Roberto Voerzio has proven to the naysayers and detractors that his techniques, a consummate melding of old and new elevage methods, do work and produce wines of unquestionable concentration and harmonious balance. He is almost fanatical in his insistence upon extraordinarily low yields; high density plantings and 2-4 clusters of grapes per vine are the norm. The cellar regimen is tailored to each vineyard's production, not over-regulating fermentations and employing a precise melange of new and used oak to achieve the overall "perfect" package. The wines are deceptive in that they are luscious and approachable, replete with ripe fruit and floral notes, but a hidden spine of structure and massive underlying tannins create an absolutely stunning Nebbiolo experience. These are rare wines that consistently rank among the best the Piedmont offers, and Voerzio is a true Nebbiolo legend.
