First bottled in 1987. The vines are planted in the Cerequio vineyard of La Morra at a density of 1,620 plants per acre which translates into extremely low yields. Aged in a combination of 1/3 new and 2/3 used French oak barriques for 2 years, and refined for 2 years in bottle before release.
"The 2004 Barolo Cerequio has been nothing short of profound on the four previous occasions I have tasted it and it is equally superb now that it is in bottle. It flows from the glass with a beautiful, pure expression of roses, flowers, sweet spices and ripe red fruit. This richly-textured, sumptuous Barolo literally shimmers with fruit from start to finish. The glorious, complete 2004 Cerequio is a superb effort from the inspired Roberto Voerzio. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024."
