ROBERTO VOERZIO: THE IMPORTANCE

Roberto Voerzio is one of the great Barolo producers. Famed for his unique style, miniscule yields and fanatical attention to detail, Roberto Voerzio is a must-have producer for any serious fine wine collector. With only 22 hectares under vine and extremely limited production on these plants (restricted down to 5 bunches per vine), these wines are some of the rarest in the region. They combine remarkable pedigree, huge potential longevity and consistently high scores from the critics.

 

Robert Parker describes Roberto Voerzio as “one of the most fanatical producers he has ever met. A man ‘completely obsessed with quality’.” Antonio Galloni from Vinous goes on to say “Voerzio’s passion, his ability to make fabulous, age-worthy wines even in the smallest of vintages, and his total commitment to quality… place him at the pinnacle of achievement among the world’s most gifted winemakers.

 

ROBERTO VOERZIO: THE INSIGHT

 

Convinced that an improvement in quality can only come from low production, Roberto was determined to experiment. Unable to persuade his brother and father of this more ‘modernist’ approach he split from the family business in 1986 and founded his own winery. He started with just 2 hectares, planting these at very high density (circa 8000 vines per hectare) in order to increase the competition between the vines and naturally reduce the yields of fruit per vine.

 

Voerzio’s fanatical approach is commendable, making 3 separate crop thinning passes in the ripening season. First he prunes down to 5-8 clusters per vine. In July he returns to the vine and removes all but the 5 best clusters. In August he returns again and removes the bottom half of each cluster, believing it is the grapes in the top of the cluster that produce the most rich and focused wine. For the Barolos up to 80% of the grapes are removed, for Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo up to 50% in order to achieve the optimum fruit concentration per vine.

 

Roberto’s philosophy is to produce the purest expression of the varietal. Voerzio is somewhat of a ‘fusionist’ in regards to élevage as he ages the wine both in small French barriques and traditional large botti (large Slovenain oak casks). The maturation process always focuses on finding the perfect balance between old (1-6 years old) and new barrels as Roberto thinks that the new oak can mask the aromas and flavours of the wine, if not carefully managed.

 

All the Barolos spend the first year in 50% used big barrels (botti grandi) and 50% barriques. In the second year 80% of the wine is refined in big barrels (botti grandi) and 30% in barrels. This is similar to the ‘fusionist style’ elevage techniques, such as those used by Vietti and Vaijra.

 

ROBERTO VOERZIO: THE BACKGROUND

 

The winery is based in the village of La Morra. Voerzio produces a wide range of cuvees but his regular releases include 5 different Barolos (Fossati Case Nere, Rocche dell’ Annunziata, La Serra, Cerequio and Brunate). He also produces a Langhe Nebbiolo Disanfrancesco, a Barbera d’Alba Il Cerreto, a Dolcetto d’Alba Priavino and a Langhe Da Uva Merlot. He also produces the following cuvees only in magnums: Barbera Pozzo dell’Annunziata, Barolo Torriglione, Barolo Sarmassa and Barbera Pozzo dell’Annunziata.
