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.

Very perfumed with black cherries and dried flowers. Some orange peel, too. Full-bodied, round and very silky. Love the finish. A beauty.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Like its cousins from the other crus reviewed here, the 2014 Barolo Cerequio must be given ample time to open. Better yet, give it another ten years of cellar aging, if not more. The fruit is rigid, tonic and tight with very fine aromas of cassis, sour cherry, balsam herb and crushed river stone. This wine is tightly wound around itself, with fruit nuances locked into a tight core. The mouthfeel is lean and long with that same tension and tightness. We can count on this wine to gain in volume and complexity as time marches by.
