    As hard as it is to believe, the 2004 Barolo Sarmassa is even better than the Cerequio. It opens with compelling, seductive aromatics that lead to an array of perfumed plums, prunes and sweet red cherries in liqueur. Blessed with superb detail and delineation, this profound Barolo offers exceptional clarity, precision and endless layers of flavor, all framed by silky, perfectly ripe tannins that provide balance. This wine has always been stunning from barrel and cask, and it is equally breathtaking in bottle.

    Wonderful aromas of strawberry, orange peel and fresh flowers. Full-bodied, with a solid, dense core of fruit, but comes across balanced and refined. Supersilky and seductive. Very, very long and balanced.

  • 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.
