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 powerful and statuesque.
Roberto Voerzio is – like many cutting edge winemakers around the world today – an incredibly thoughtful man, who is working as close to nature as possible. “One of the central tenets of the Voerzio approach,” says Antonio Galloni, “is a steadfast belief that the relationship between low yields and high quality is always linear”.
What this translates to is a strict method of green harvesting that brings yields down to less than a pound of fruit per plant (“normal” yields in Barolo are on average twice that). An additional trimming of individual bunches further reduces yields and concentrates flavours.
Roberto’s wines are deep yet refined, with flavours that lean towards riper, black fruits. It is with great pleasure that we invite you to a Masterclass of these superb wines, hosted by Roberto Voerzio.
