Roberto Voerzio Barolo del Comune di La Morra 2019
Cellar Roberto Voerzio
Roberto Voerzio, an icon of avant-garde viticulture in the Langhe. His style is unique, his love for wine and the land have led him to produce grandiose wines. The facts speak for themselves, 8000 vines per hectare, super bunch selection, aggressive thinning, 500 grams of grapes per plant ( traditionally Piedmontese winemakers harvest about 2 kilograms). His work in the vineyards is more than manic, his plants are immediately recognizable by their cleanliness and tidiness, and the philosophy of using only organic products and manure for the well-being of the vines does not go unnoticed at all.
He founded his winery in the 1980s by buying the best vineyards with the most beautiful exposures, producing limited quantities for each cru with amazing and unparalleled power and structure.
Brunate, La Serra,Cerequio, Rocche dell’Annunziata and Fossati are the namesake vineyards where he vinifies in purity the various cru, all located in La Morra and always considered the most prestigious for the quality of the grapes.
Barolo del Comune di La Morra
This Barolo by Roberto Voerzio originates from a selection of Nebbiolo grapes from four cru vineyards in the municipality of La Morra: Fossati, La Serra, Case Nere and Boiolo.
Everything starts with the manual harvest of the grapes. Fermentation lasts from 10-30 days and takes place spontaneously, without the addition of selected yeasts. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is transferred to wood where it ages for at least 18 months.
