I really like the ripe plum and berry fruit that turns to almost dried dark fruits on the palate. Full and juicy, with round tannins. Yummy. Better after 2013. James Suckling. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2006 Roberto Voerzio Barolo Cerequio 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

Roberto Voerzio is indisputably one of the very best of Barolo. He set up in La Morra in 1987 when he began the process of purchasing or leasing the most important vineyards for cru Barolo. The Gambero Rosso guide to Italian wines sums up Voerzio’s approach like this: “The formula is simple but effective: extremely prestigious plots (at La Serra, Sarmassa, Cerequio, Brunate, Pozzo del’ Annunziata and Capalot [and now Rocche]), traditional varieties (Barbera and Nebbiolo), vines with advanced average age, very low yields obtained by severe pruning, and meticulous vinification that aims to bring out the superb quality of the grapes. Voerzio’s style is broadly characterized by great richness and concentration, huge complexity, silky textures, fine acidities and initially austere tannins. His Barolos are without exaggeration some of the world’s greatest wines. The Barolo Cerequio is fast emerging as Roberto Voerzio'z most sdazzling wine of his 2006 vintage. This is a captivating wine, with aromas of flowers, spices, minerals and ripe fruit. Silky, smooth and sweet tannins lead the tastebuds into a fresh and lingering finish, overall an energetic and exceptional wine. This exquisite red works wonderfully with game, truffles and medium to strong cheeses.
