TASTING NOTES

"Medium ruby. I was completely floored by this bottle of Voerzio's 1993 Barolo Brunate, which I enjoyed at a local restaurant with friends. It offers extraordinary balance, presenting an evolved nose of truffles and tobacco complemented by sweet, ethereal fruit on the palate with great length and harmony. This would have probably been better if we had let it open up a little more in the decanter, but it was so delicious we had no problem polishing it off in short order. Though mature it should drink at peak for at least another five years. A great effort. “In 1993 my yields were quite a bit more than they are today,” explains Voerzio. “This Barolo was aged in a mix of barriques and mid-size 20 hectoliter barrels, which I used between 1988-1995. I have to say that when I taste my wines from this time period today, it makes me think about going back to using medium-sized barrels again. I am not sure if the public would accept such a choice, though, as tastes today tend to favor barrique-aged wines.” As much as I enjoy Voerzio's current releases, this 1993 Barolo shows a remarkable transparency that beautifully bridges traditional and modern styles."
