Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
The winery was founded in 1986 in La Morra, a village in the heart of the Langhe, always known for its vineyards, some of which were mentioned in the municipalities books since 1350. Of the living winemaking legends in Piedmont, there are few quite like Roberto Voerzio. His fame is international, his philosophy uncompromising, and his Barolo wines seemingly eternal.
He does regularly and with conviction what few other growers would dare to do—whether it be a draconian approach to green harvesting or discarding wine deemed unworthy of the Voerzio name—and as a result, he has redefined the boundaries of what makes world-class Barolo.
Such vigilance in the fields allows Voerzio to reach each vintage what he says is his ultimate goal: delivering the purest expression of Nebbiolo that is possible.
Voerzio wines should never be rushed, however, as they require at least five years in bottle before revealing their true nature. And there is no question that this true nature—suave, concentrated, textured—places Voerzio Barolo solidly in the ranks of Italy’s finest wines.
