Roberto Voerzio Azienda Agricola, Piedmont

Founded in 1986 in La Morra, a village in the heart of the Langhe, the Roberto Voerzio winery represents the most highly esteemed sites of the La Morra commune: Brunate, La Serra, Cerequio, Rocche dell’Annunziata/Torriglione, Vecchie Vite dei Capalot e dell Brunate, and Sarmassa. In addition to his Barolo portfolio, Voerzio also produces Barbera, including the renowned Barbera d’Alba Riserva Vigneto Pozzo dell’Annunziata, Dolcetto, Langhe-designated bottlings, and a Super-Piemonte named Vignaserra.

Voerzio is known for his unrelenting perfectionism: fertilization is done manually with cow manure or humus according to the specific needs of each plant; winter pruning is very short; the vines are thinned twice, the first thinning removing up to 50% of grapes, the second thinning leaving only the top most rich and focused fruit. Voerzio’s production yields are famously low - indeed they are the lowest in Barolo.

Voerzio straddles the modernist/traditionalist camps in Piedmont: maceration average is 15 days and a combination of barriques and midsized barrels are used. Additives and chemicals are kept to an absolute minimum in the cellar - even at the risk of not producing wine, as happened with some bottlings in the challenging 2003 vintage - fermentations occurs spontaneously without the addition of yeasts; a small amount of sulphur is added at bottling.

Roberto Voerzio is without doubt one of the finest producers in the whole of Piedmont.
