Vivid aromas of ripe, almost dry strawberries with fresh roses. Perfumes transform in the glass. Full body plus dusty tannins that are velvety and caressing. Tangy finish. A rich and structured red with a long future.
The Roberto Voerzio 2012 Barolo Brunate is a stunning expression with layered complexity and finesse. The wine shows a lively garnet-ruby color with a balanced and intense bouquet. You`ll recognize tar, cigar ash, grilled herb and cured leather with lots of dark fruit at the core. Those fruit tones recall black currant and plum. The quality of those primary aromas is tight and powerful, but not aggressive. This wine promises a long aging future as those fine tannins become even silkier.
“Voerzio’s passion, his ability to make fabulous, age worthy wines even in the smallest vintages, and his total commitment to quality, even over a period of years that have been very difficult on a personal level place him at the pinnacle of achievement among the world’s most gifted winemakers.”
Roberto Voerzio was founded in 1986 in La Morra which is a village deep in the heart of the Langhe region of Piedmont. The wines are typically sold at auction and are known for being ripe, opulent, tannic, and made for aging. Roberto Voerzio’s fruit comes from their 21 acres of some of the best and oldest vineyeards in La Morra, which are mentioned municipality documents dating back to 1350. Their esteemed wines are made from the six different, low-yielding Barolo Crus: Brunate, Cerequio, Capalot, La Serra, Pozzo dell’Anunziata, and Sarmassa di Barolo. Roberto Voerzio’s portfolio is rounded out by its two Barbera d’Alba wines, a Dolcetto d’Alba, a Langhe Merlot, and a Langhe Nebbiolo. The combination of traditional winemaking methods with a modern take has made Voerzio a new-age example for Barolo.
