Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 99

Shows dried blackberry and blueberry aromas, with hints of vanilla. Full-bodied, with layers of ripe tannins and incredible fruit. This is an amazing young wine, with loads of fruit concentration and a long finish of ripe tannins. Mind-blowing.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

The 2005 Barolo Brunate, on the other hand, has begun to come out of its shell and is incredibly expressive. Layers of fresh, vibrant Brunate fruit emerge from this dark, sensual Barolo. The depth and richness are impressive for a 2005, while the finish is strikingly beautiful. This is shaping up to be magnificent.

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.
