This now cult status winery was established in 1986, when a young Roberto Voerzio decided to leave the family business to make wine on his own, with the support of his wife Pinuccia. The estate began with just two hectares (5 acres), but years of patient and diligent negotiations were rewarded with the acquisition of some of the most prestigious and historic crus in La Morra for the production of Barolo as well as excellent vineyards for varieties such as Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo and Merlot.

At Roberto Voerzio, an almost fanatical attention and dedication is lavished on each and every vineyard, vine and cluster. High density planting (6,000/8000 vines per hectare), short winter pruning (leaving just 6-8 buds per plant), a green harvest in mid-July (reducing the bunches by more than 50%) and a second thinning-out in mid-August (during which each cluster is reduced in size by cutting off the bottom part and leaving just the full, more concentrated upper section) translate into drastically reduced Read more »

  • Roberto Voerzio Brunate Barolo 2001

    Snoothrank:

    This is savory and complex on the nose with layers of leather, celery seed, and umami rich dried ham aromas but not much fruit. Smooth and powerful in the mouth, this is a shiny wine but at the same time its packed with nicely earth framed dark wild berry fruit in a muscular style. Its a bit short and turns a bit oaky on the backend but its drin... Read More

  • Roberto Voerzio Barolo Fossati Case Nere 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of ripeness on the nose, stewy and still oaky. This is fairly fresh on the palate considering the vintage, though it still shows some wood along with flavors of rich red fruits. This is a powerful wine with a rustic finish that shows a green edge to the tannins here. You can sense that this might be an elegant wine in another vintage, even... Read More

  • Roberto Voerzio Brunate Barolo 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Powerful aromas of beef blood, cinnamon, nutmeg, a touch of rust, dark fruit, and macerated medicinal herbs greet the nose. This is texturally packed on the palate, rich and yet with a touch of austerity. Nicely rounded tannins supported flavors that show flashes of mint and something vegetal along with a big follow through of root beer on the f... Read More

  • Roberto Voerzio Barolo Rocche Dell'Annunziata Torriglione 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Filled with aromas of dark ripe fruit that have a bit of a sweet wild cherry coulis aspect to them are topped with meaty, balsamic, and dried beef perfumes. This is tight and slightly austere, very 2008 in character with nice acids and structural integration, though a little vegetable bouillon appears on the midpalate. This is integrating the wo...

    Nice notes of macerated flowers greets the nose along with wood spice, toasty oak, and some balsamic top notes. Nicely rich and powerful on entry with good clarity on the palate and lots of ripe fruit supported by nice ripe tannins lending this a broad and yet transparent feel on the palate. This shows a little oxidation on the backend with a l... Read More

  • Voerzio Roberto Barolo Cerequio 2009

    Snoothrank:

    A nice lightly jammy wild cherry note spread over a cedar shingle that has that dry wood note of old grey wood greets the nose. This shows nice liquory red fruit, a little red curranty, in a smooth style with good clarity on the palate, nice acid cut and fine grained tannins that build on the palate. Fairly crisp, spicy strawberry fruit has to ... Read More
