  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    (from Voerzio's highest-altitude site): Dark red. Much more floral on the nose than the Cerequio, offering scents of black cherry, raspberry, violet and brown spices. Vinous, slightly high-toned and penetrating, offering a lovely combination of inner-mouth perfume, finesse of texture, sheer flavor intensity and powerful spine. Finishes very long, fresh and suave. A knockout.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

    A heady, plum-laden style, with hints of smoke, wild cherry and flowers. Though rich, this features moderate tannins and a vibrant finish. Should evolve in the near term. Best from 2015 through 2027. 316 cases made.

  • 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.
