Roberto Voerzio Barolo Cerequio 2001
Dark ruby. Voerzio's Cerequio is usually my favorite of his wines and the 2001 is truly special. It opens with a beautiful floral nose, followed by suggestions of spices and cocoa, then melds seamlessly onto a palate packed with layers of super-ripe fruit. Boasting notable concentration, as well as definition, length and finesse, it is a great effort for the vintage.
2001 Vintage + Roberto Voerzio's best wine = One of the best Barolos on the market right? Not quite. Really deep red with dark hues in the glass, we have a very subtle nose that opens up really very slowly, once it does we have pretty nose of strawberries, cherries and flowers and again, a mineral quality. On the palate the wine is full bodied with surprisingly silky tannins, the wine is ripe but opens up really at the last minute. Today the wine is worth 94 points but I get a sneaky feeling this is one to leave another 5 years at least.
