Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95(+?)

($220) Good medium red. Exotic aromas of redcurrant liqueur, flowers, minerals, brown spices and mint. Silky and suave on entry, then bright and fine-grained in the middle, with terrific energy. Velvety-smooth but not quite thick. The longest of these 2001s today, building inexorably, with the very fine tannins spreading out horizontally to saturate the palate. A wonderfully elegant, sweet La Morra Barolo in the making. (The 2001 Sarmassa di Barolo was completely mute on the nose and impenetrable in the middle palate, with its huge tannins currently overshadowing its raspberry fruit. I will wait to taste this wine in its finished form.)

Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

Extremely focused with beautiful blackberry and cedar character. Full-bodied, yet reserved and refined, with supersilky tannins and a long, long finish. Fab balance here. Only the second year in production and seriously seductive. 400 cases made.

The 2001 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata/Torriglione is starting to show early signs of maturity. Worn in leather, spices, crushed flowers and dried black fruits are some of the notes that flow from this elegant, classy Barolo. The 2001 Rocche isn't likely to make old bones, but it is in a sweet spot right now, where there is lovely tertiary complexity and also enough fruit to support as much as another decade of aging. My preference would be to drink the Rocche over the next few years.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Nebbiolo


Big, dark, and bold, Nebbiolo is a robust variety with heavy tannins and a sometimes bitter profile. While areas outside Italy (Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, California, and South Africa) have begun cultivating Nebbiolo, the Italian region of Piedmont is where it reaches its greatest height. It is here, the historic home to Nebbiolo, where the finest Barolos and Barbarescos are produced. Many winemakers have compared this grape to Pinot Noir for its difficult growing habits and unpredictable cellar and aging behavior. Typical descriptors for Nebbiolo include roses, violets, tar, wild herbs, cherries, raspberries, truffles, and tobacco.
