    The 2009 Barolo Riserva Vecchie Viti dei Capalot e delle Brunate is one of the most vivid and thrilling wines I have tasted at Voerzio in over a decade of regular visits. Black cherries, flowers, spices, menthol and licorice all jump from the glass. Layered, delineated and striking in its beauty, the 2009 impresses for its pure sophistication and elegance. This is an unusually polished vintage for the Capalot, a wine that is often much more brooding. Readers who can latch onto a few of the magnums will not be disappointed. (Magnum)

  • 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.
