    Going back in time, the 2003 Barolo Fossati Case Nere Riserva 10 anni is a virtual celebration of the last ten years of our lives. It will undoubtedly be there for us, in fighting form, ten years from now. Enormously expressive and communicative, the wine shows enough ripe fruit and soft fleshiness to carry it through the years. It expresses beauty and grace. But, above all, this is a wine that makes us look forward and dream of what the future will bring. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030.

    Nose of dried fruits such as prunes, with a Christmas-cake undertone. Turns to hints of caramel and spices. Full-bodied, with polished, refined tannins. Turns to Chinese spices, meat, ginseng and berries. Aged 10 years. First vintage.

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.
