"Offers aromas of blackberry, licorice and tar. Intense and full-bodied, with a wonderful concentration of fruit, super-silky tannins and a complex finish of pure fruit and Indian spices. Superb for the vintage. Best after 2012." - WS 97
"Good saturated full red. Lovely perfumed nose offers redcurrant and rose petal. Dense, sweet and nicely delineated, offering lovely energy without any impression of weight. This has a floral character I don't find in the estate's 2003s. Finishes long and impressively pure, with firm but fine tannins and vibrant fruits and flowers. Structured to evolve slowly in bottle." - ST 92
This is an Italian cult winery at its finest. Some particulars of the Voerzio winery are low production and very little wine for our, or any, market and high high scores with all wine publications and journalists. He’s a modernist to the extent that he fashions his wine away from the traditional tannic Barolo style. The wines are not over-extracted and oaky. There is an eager market for Barolo, and good Barolos are never inexpensive, so unsurprisingly Voerzio’s top wines are trophy items. La Serra is the most concentrated and richest of Roberto Voerzio’s Barolos.
