Roberto Voerzio established his own winery in La Morra in 1986. Beginning with just 2 hectares, Roberto and his family have succeeded in acquiring some of the most prestigious and historic crus of Barolo: La Serra, Brunate, Cerequio, Sarmassa, Rocche dell'Annunziata and Fossati, plus excellent vineyards for Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo Langhe and Merlot.
For more than thirty years, Roberto and now Davide have worked their vineyards with the greatest respect for nature and in the cellar follow a traditional path to allow the diversity of each vineyard and each vintage to emerge.
The 2013 Barolo La Serra is superb. In fact, the 2013 is one of the most impressive young La Serras I have ever tasted from Roberto Voerzio because the tannins are much more polished than is typically the case here, where the high altitude of this site tends to produce sinewy, nervous Barolos. Today, the 2013 is brilliant and super-expressive, with remarkable precision and class. As always, the flavors are bright and floral, with a good underpinning of chalky, mineral-driven tones, with remarkable polish and class to burn. What a gorgeous wine this is.
