Wine Advocate 97 points - Voerzio’s 2004 Barolo Brunate captures the telltale balsamic notes of this justly famous site with gorgeous suggestions of mint, tobacco and licorice wrapped around an expressive, authoritative core of plush dark plums, prunes and black cherries. This dark, brooding Barolo finishes with big, building tannins that will require patience. A bottle of the 1997 I tasted alongside it had developed a flavor profile eerily similar to that of a 1991 Jaboulet A?n? Hermitage La Chapelle I tasted a few days prior. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

"Dark ruby in color. Aromas of blackberry, licorice and aniseed. Full-bodied, chewy and very rich, with a tannic yet polished texture. Not giving much now, but there's excellent structure and balance. Muscular. Best after 2012." - WS 95

The Brunate vineyard makes the finest and raciest Barolos, and Roberto Voerzio makes the best Brunate. The dynamic winemaker is a fanatic for keeping his grape yields low, which is why his wines show such richness and concentration. This Brunate is wonderfully defined and firm, it finishes with big, ripe tannins and very good length. An outstanding Barolo, massive yet polished.

Producer
Our winery was established in 1986 in La Morra, a town in the heart of the Langhe that has always been renowned for the greatness of its vineyards, some of which were mentioned in town records going back as far as 1250. We began with 2 hectares, and over the years have managed to acquire the most prestigious, historic crus for the production of Barolo, such as La Serra, Brunate, Cerequio, Sarmassa, Rocche dell’Annunziata and Fossati, and excellent vineyards for Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo and Merlot. We then decided to increase the number of vines in the new vineyards, and in some of the old ones, to 6000/8000 per hectare and reduce yield for the most prestigious wines to 500/700 grams per plant. The clusters we leave on our vines are exclusively responsible for the quality of our wine. We have always worked in the traditional way in the cellar, with total simplicity at every stage from vinification to bottling, with no interference, letting the diversity of each terroir emerge and giving each vineyard the chance to make its own wine. Our production is limited: with just over 20 hectares we produce between 40,000 to 60,000 bottles, depending on the harvest.
