roberto voerzio, barolo, la serra 2014
The 2014 La Serra is another knockout wine from Roberto Voerzio. La Serra is a site that tends to produce nervous, slightly angular wines. In 2014, though, Voerzio manages to temper some of that tannic edge. Dark cherry and plum fruit are nicely rendered in this surprisingly silky, unctuous Barolo. Blood orange, spice, menthol and licorice grow in the glass as the wine's upper register begins to emerge over time. This is a remarkably harmonious young Barolo.
A very fine and aromatic red with strawberries, flowers and lemons. Tight and focused with firm, silky tannins. A long, bright finish with a pretty backbone of fine tannins. Drink in 2020 and onwards.
