  • Vinous | Rating: 96

    Firm tannins give the 2010 Barolo La Serra much of its energy and cut. A brilliant wine, the 2010 bursts from the glass with freshly cut flowers, mint, sweet spices and licorice. As always La Serra has a certain tannic spine that is impossible to miss. In 2010 La Serra is striking. Sweet rose petals, red berries, mint and crushed rocks reappear on the bright, chiseled finish. This is a fabulous La Serra.

    The 2010 Barolo La Serra shows a broader approach to its aromatic delivery with a generous portion of red fruit, blackberry and a touch of exotic spice. Like the Cerequio, the wine shows impressive grip and structure that goes above and beyond many of the other wines made in this delicate vintage. Barolo La Serra is focused and bright and should hold many long years. Drink: 2017-2033.

  • 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.
