Roberto Voerzio Barbera d'Alba Il Cerreto Piedmont Italy 2015

Roberto Voerzio, a man for whom quality is an obsession, is better known for his extraordinary Barolo’s. Voerzio also crafts some exceptionally beautiful Barbera’s which are exceptional examples of the meticulous and fanatical winemaking and offer an insight into the style of this winemaking genius at a fraction of the price of his legendary Barolo’s.

Voerzio’s Barbera d'Alba "Vigneti Cerreto" is a wine of great complexity and intensity. This bold and masculine wine has beautiful flavour concentration with notes of fresh black plum and blackberry followed by peppery spice and liquorice. Firm, round tannins are very well balanced with bright acidity leading to the very long finish.

AWARDS AND REVIEWS

92 points, Wine Advocate
This is a delicious red wine with plump fruit flavors and exuberant fruit. I happily paired it with meat-filled angolotti and melted butter. The 2015 Barbera d'Alba Il Cerreto benefits from the warm vintage and offers dark layers of Morello cherry and blackberry as a result. The mouthfeel is rich and succulent, yet the wine also shows its elegance and is never too heavy or dense. by Monica Larner
