(from Voerzio's lowest-altitude site): Good medium red. Superripe aromas of roasted redcurrant, strawberry and chocolate. Very suave and fine-grained, with a cooked strawberry flavor complemented by brown spices, chocolate and truffle. Finishes with big dusty tannins that turn a bit dry. Quite smooth but a bit riper than I prefer my Barolos. Perhaps not the best vintage for this site.

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.
