Critic Notes

The 1999 Barolo La Serra has always been a magnificent wine as it is again tonight. I have often felt this Barolo and Voerzio’s other 1999s, signal the first move towards a more elegant and finessed style. Sweet, floral aromatics meld into vibrant layers of mineral-infused dark cherries as the wine opens up in the glass. This young, sweeping Barolo is simply magnificent and one of the very finest La Serras Voerzio has made over the course of his career. Though delicious today, the wine promises to drink beautifully for another 15-20 years. It is superb. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025. Antonio Galloni, In the Cellar # 0310 Mar 2010

Score: 95-/100The Wine Advocate

A magnificent wine when it was young, Roberto Voerzio's 1999 Barolo La Serra has developed beautifully in bottle. Fresh, floral aromatics abound in a layered, impeccably delineated wine. Sweet rose petals, red berries, spices and mint are wrapped around a core of super-expressive fruit. The usually firm La Serra tannins are nearly covered by the intensity of the fruit. I have always adored the 1999 La Serra, a wine that remains fabulous, with plenty of life ahead. Aug 2014, www.vinous.com, Drink: 2014-2024

The 1999 Barolo La Serra is very floral, spicy, and minty, with much mocha on the nose, rich, dense flavors which feature ripe fruit and sweet tar and licorice, and important extract. It is already approachable, but waiting is advisable – drink from 2006 and 2018. Oct 2003, www.robertparker.com

Roberto Voerzio - "Throw Away The Rulebook"
F+R visits the radical winemaker of Barolo Radical Viticulture – Bringing Forward the Harvest Date In the vineyard Roberto Voerzio harvests his grapes up to a month earlier than his neighbours! For Roberto, the autumn fog, cold weather and rain is to be avoided at all costs believing this results in a loss of power and fruit purity. In order ...

Roberto Voerzio – A modernist in the vineyard a traditionalist in the cellar
** ** Does Voerzio epitomise 'Fusionist' winemaking gripping Barolo? 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 ...
