  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    ($285) Good full medium red. Lower-toned aromas of plum, menthol, herbs and woodsmoke; less fruity than La Serra. Then spicy and quite tight in the mouth, with its oaky side and strong underlying structure currently dominating. A bit awkward from the late August bottling, with its floral and fruity elements currently in the deep background, but this appears to have an even firmer structure than La Serra. The big tannins reach the incisors.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

    Plenty of blackberry, lavender and milk chocolate on the nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. Balanced and pretty. 530 cases made.

    The 2004 Barolo Cerequio has been nothing short of profound on the four previous occasions I have tasted it and it is equally superb now that it is in bottle. It flows from the glass with a beautiful, pure expression of roses, flowers, sweet spices and ripe red fruit. This richly-textured, sumptuous Barolo literally shimmers with fruit from start to finish. The glorious, complete 2004 Cerequio is a superb effort from the inspired Roberto Voerzio.

  • 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.
