International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 117

($220) Medium red. Roasted redcurrant and tobacco on the nose, with a suggestion of dried fruits that reminded me of a Bonneau Chateauneuf du Pape. Then fat, rich and chewy, though not especially sweet in the middle. Liqueur-like redcurrant syrup flavor complicated by minerals, leather and animal fur. Finishes with big, drying tannins. This is Voerzio's highest-altitude cru and a wine that's usually perfumed in the early going, but today this is my least favorite 2000 here. (There will be no La Serra in the hot year of 2003, and in the hail year of 2002, Voerzio didn't even bother to harvest these vines.)

Wine Advocate Author: Antonio Galloni Issue: 195

The 2000 Barolo La Serra is just starting to show early hints of tertiary complexity. Sweet herbs, tobacco, licorice and worn-in leather add considerable complexity to a core of powerful dark fruit. The La Serra possesses remarkable depth and nuance, with initial Syrah-like notes that melt into an endless, layered Barolo of exceptional elegance. This is a great La Serra. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

This is really seductive on the nose, with Indian spices, blackberries, plums and cedar. Turns to flowers. Full-bodied, with layers of gorgeous ripe tannins and loads of ripe fruit. Yet goes on and on. Wonderful balance. This is better than the 1997.
