One third of this comes from the Barolo Cru and two thirds is a blend of Cerequio, La Serra, Rocche del Annunziata and Case Nere. The vines are grown in the typically Voerzio way high density and low yielding – just a kilo of fruit per vine. The plots are all co-harvested and fermented. Intense but tight-knit initially but after a bit of coaxing the very La Morra style fruit is unlocked. Offering up crisp red fruits - strawberry and raspberry. The fruit is supported by a bit of structure – grainy tannins and some underlying sweet spice notes and a lick of sweet oak. Aged for two years in a mix of big and small barrels, light toast, French oak (15, 20, 30 and 35 HL sizes for the big barrels).

About Roberto Voerzio

Roberto Voerzio is undeniably one of the greatest winemakers in Piedmont, his “Barolos are some of the richest, deepest and most texturally beautiful wines (Antonio Galloni, Vinous). Voerzio’s name, not to mention his labels, is one of the most recognisable in Italy and these exceedingly sought-after bottlings have acquired one of the largest cult followings in Piedmont.

 

The Roberto Voerzio estate was born in 1987 in the heart of the Langhe, and has since built a collection of La Morra's most prized vineyards, rivalled by few other growers. Described by Antonio Galloni, Vinous as ‘one of the world’s most talented and passionate winemakers’, Voerzio is a staunch perfectionist, only bottling his wines if they match his exacting standards.

 

Viniculture

Voerzio’s yields are also the lowest in the region (500g of fruit per vine for the Crus), giving the utmost intensity and generosity to his wines. The freshness he obtains from these radical green harvesting methods allows his masterpieces to age with a unique style. It is this avant-garde approach that has given him a modernist reputation, yet taking his greatest inspiration from the masters; Giacosa, Conterno and Rinaldi, he expertly bridges the gap to the traditional school. This incredible attention to detail and immaculate vineyard management not only results in stunning quality, but also tiny volumes being produced.
