Seamless and gracious on the palate, the 2010 Barolo Sarmassa impresses for its silkiness and pure elegance. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, mint and cinnamon are some of the many notes that emerge from the glass. The 2010 is finessed, creamy and exceptionally polished from start to finish. The 2010 is one of the two Voerzio Barolos still aged exclusively in French oak (the other is the Torriglione) because of its small production. Both wines are also only bottled in magnums.

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.
