Average critic rating : 95.0 points



Firm tannins give the 2010 Barolo La Serra much of its energy and cut. A brilliant wine, the 2010 bursts from the glass with freshly cut flowers, mint, sweet spices and licorice. As always La Serra has a certain tannic spine that is impossible to miss. In 2010 La Serra is striking. Sweet rose petals, red berries, mint and crushed rocks reappear on the bright, chiseled finish. This is a fabulous La Serra. 2018 - 2035



The 2010 Barolo La Serra shows a broader approach to its aromatic delivery with a generous portion of red fruit, blackberry and a touch of exotic spice. Like the Cerequio, the wine shows impressive grip and structure that goes above and beyond many of the other wines made in this delicate vintage. Barolo La Serra is focused and bright and should hold many long years. Drink: 2017-2033. ||Roberto Voerzio started buying prized vineyard parcels in 1982 and has since amassed one of the most important portfolios of single-vineyards (15 parcels over totaling 12 hectares) in La Morra (with Sarmassa and a piece of Cerequio in the neighboring township of Barolo). He follows a unique winemaking philosophy that is somewhere on the spectrum between traditionalists and modernist, but Roberto himself brushes off these broad stroke categories with a shrug and a smile. “In the years between 2003 and 2007, my approach to oak changed over and over. I went from larger containers to smaller ones and back again to larger,” he says: “Ultimately no one really noticed. What is noticeable however is his non-interventionist’s approach. He uses ambient years without sulfites for the fermentations followed by spontaneous malolactic fermentations and does not filter. He also chooses different bottle formats to represent each wine (with a generous array of large format bottles) and sells them in meticulously numbered lots. Fossati was latest acquisition with 20 and 30 years vines. eRobertParker.com.July, 2014

Azienda Agricola Roberto Voerzio is an Italian wine producer based in La Morra, in the heart of the Langhe area of Piemonte. The winery is known for producing top quality Barolo from some of the most prestigious vineyard sites in the region. In addition to Barolo, Barbera d’Alba, Dolcetto and Merlot are also produced at a very high level. The winery philosophy is simply to have the greatest respect for nature. No chemical fertilizers, fungicides or pesticides are used at all in the vineyards and vines are pruned heavily in the winter, leaving only 5-8 buds per plant. During the growing season the vineyards are maintained meticulously with heavy green harvesting, pruning and leaf thinning, resulting in a very small but high quality production. The yields at Roberto Voerzio are said to be the lowest in the region. In the winery, fermentations are carried out as cleanly as possible with only native yeast being used and no use of additives that can alter the flavour profile of the wine. All of the wines are bottled unfiltered in order to maintain their intense flavour concentration, though they are known to be bright, elegant and light on their feet stylistically. The winery recommends a minimum of 5-6 ageing in the bottle before they are opened; however, they will evolve over 2-30 years if kept in optimal conditions. The production at Roberto Voerzio is limited; with 20 hectares under vine, only 40,000-60,000 bottles are produced depending on the harvest. With remarkable pedigree, massive ageing potential and consistently high scores from James Suckling and Antonio Galloni, the Barolo from Roberto Voerzio is not to be missed.
