  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

    Deep ruby-red. Superripe aromas of black raspberry, blackcurrant and flowers. Great penetrating sweetness leavened by firm acidity. Palate-staining, remarkably long finish features major mouthcoating tannins. More expressive today than the '96 Brunate, but the Brunate may ultimately be the more complex bottle.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 96

    Gushing with fruit on the nose, with blackberry, fresh porcini and flowers. Full-bodied and very powerful, with masses of fruit and solid tannins. Incredible that this is still just a baby. The tough tannins are starting to mellow.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

    The superb 1996 Barolo La Serra's opaque ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of black fruits (blackberry, cherry, and a hint of raspberry), superb purity, highly extracted, powerful, monster-sized flavors, mouth-searing levels of tannin, and an impressively endowed, 40+ second finish. This backward, pure, intensely concentrated Barolo will require patience.

  • 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.
