  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    ($285; full south exposition) Moderately saturated red. Superripe aromas of cherry and tobacco, with a whiff of dried flowers. Supple, round and lush but without the lift and cut of the best years. A fleshy, sweet Barolo that finishes with substantial, broad tannins. Voerzio tossed out his La Serra and Rocche 2003 due to fermentation problems (|the yeasts couldn't work through all the sugar,| according to Bussolo).

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

    Offers beautiful aromas of plum, spices and mushroom. Full-bodied, with plenty of ripe fruit and caressing, velvety tannins. Long and attractive. Very structured yet harmonious. 50 cases imported.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

    The 2003 Barolo Cerequio opens with sweet, high-toned aromatics that lead to a feminine, super-ripe expression of small red fruit, minerals and toasted oak. Made in a taut, focused style, it needs a few years to come together, yet today it doesn-t appear to be an especially long-lived wine. In most vintages, the Cerequio is Voerzio-s most complete wine, but it seems to have suffered in 2003.

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.

Piedmont, which literally means “foot of the mountain,” produces some of Italy's finest red wines. Its clay, limestone, and sand soils are home to the legendary Barolo and Barbaresco wines, made from the extremely age-worthy Nebbiolo variety. Dolcetto and Barbera are considered to be more “workhorse” varieties, and produce the largest quantity of wine. The region is tucked in the cool northwest corner of the country, surrounded on three sides by the Alps. Fog often blankets the region, ensuring long, cool growing seasons.
