Critic Notes

“A silky and refined red with hints of chocolate, toffee and dried fruits, verging on prunes. Full-bodied, yet compacted and polished. Beautiful finish. A gorgeous red now 10 years old. This is released 10 years after the vintage. Drink and marvel.” Sept 2015 www.jamessuckling.com

Score: 97-/100James Suckling

Another strong effort, the 2005 Barolo Riserva 10 Anni Fossati Case Nere offers an intriguing interplay of power and sensuality. Dark red stone fruits, menthol, sage and licorice open up, but with considerable aeration. The aromatics are beguiling, while there is quite a bit of depth to the fruit, all of which adds up to a satisfying if reticent Barolo that should be cellared for another year or two, or given a at least a few hours of air. Jul 2016, www.vinous.com, Drink: 2018-2030

F+R Opinion
Roberto Voerzio hosts Fine+Rare Event at Luca Restaurant
Roberto is such a calm and measured man, but even he could not hide his excitement over his latest 2019 vintage as he arrived in London buoyed by the latest harvest.

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 ...

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 ...

Produttori del Barbaresco - The Single Vineyard Riservas
It is a rare chance to taste all the single vineyards side by side and the best opportunity to really try and understand the nuances and terroirs of each of the separate sites. What is immediately clear is however variable in their tannin profiles, aromatics and fruit flavours, they are all incredibly consistent in quality. There isn’t a bad wine in the line-up, more than ...
