From a producer hailed as “...one of the world’s most talented and passionate winemakers…” at work today - and one we encourage you to explore.
Nebbiolo Di San Francesco, Langhe 2014
"It’s from Vignetto San Francesco Fontenazza, though they run it into one word on the label. La Morra producer with a dash of new oak... It’s a good Nebbiolo experience, fragrant and spiced with cinnamon, fresh strawberry and mint, and perhaps a little tar. Medium bodied, slightly sappy and crisp, with a run of dry and grainy tannin -- a touch astringent -- but lively and finely wrought, the finish brisk and fresh, and of moderate length. Easy to enjoy, but kind of bony, though with the right food, even better still." Gary Walsh - Wine Front
Roberto Voerzio is renowned with its rigor on controlling his production yield combine with contemporary winemaking style in Barolo. In the 80's he lead the wave of green harvest in his region, where green fruits are dropped to focus on one to two bunches of grapes. Approximately 750 grams of fruit is harvested for each vine, which is half the size of generally considered a exceptional output of top tier grape vines. The vinification approach with both traditional botti and french barrique, has allow the wine to integrate both oak and fruit into a balance yet rich on every aspect. His ability to produce exquisite wines, with an extremely high attention to detail are difficult to surpass. This has made him to be on of the cult produvcer in the Barolo region.
