2012 roberto voerzio, barolo, cerequio
Why We're Buying
Roberto Voerzio has always maintained an uncompromising vision for his wines. It's why his Barolo is the gold standard in Piedmont. Take his Barolo Cerequio, for example. The grapes come from one of the elite vineyards in La Morra, where the vines are 35+ years old and hand-harvested. After aging in three separate systems, this Barolo justifies its triple-digit price tag.
The 2012 Barolo Cerequio is arguably the most complete of these wines, as it brings together aromatic complexity, dense fruit and fabulous balance. All the elements flesh out in a rich, sumptuous Barolo endowed with real power and depth, yet there is plenty of the nuance that distinguishes Cerequio. There are a number of terrific wines in this lineup, but the Cerequio is the wine that seems to be the most dialed in today. With time in the glass, the intensity of both fruit and tannin simply continues to blossom.
