This 100% nebbiolo from Roberto Voerzio wine estate is dense and soft with herbs, blueberries, blackberries and jam, then sweet liquorice and humus. The Barolo2008 La Serra is solid with great acidity and invigorating ripe tannins. Right now it is the most expressive Barolo of the vintage.
Roberto Voerzio : La Serra 2008
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2008 Barolo La Serra emerges from the glass with dark red fruit, tar, smoke, licorice, spices and new leather. Today the 2008 comes across as surprisingly dark and masculine. The high-toned floral notes that are typical of this site have been replaced by a much darker, brooding register filled with tar, incense and black fruit notes. The wine freshens up beautifully with time in the glass as the aromatics become a bit more expressive. Voerzio's 2008 La Serra is a huge and hugely promising wine. The firm tannins argue for at least a few more years in bottle. A hint of rose petal lingers on the intense finish. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028.
