Tasting Notes

Roberto Voerzio started his winery in 1986, so it’s not exactly ancient by Italian standards or even in Piedmont, which compared to Tuscany is a relative newcomer. Roberto’s winery is in La Morra, the furthest west of all the Barolo Communes and generally considered the most delicate. We’re still talking Barolo, yet Roberto’s wines are anything but delicate. Roberto’s wines are powerful because he’s a believer in intense, green harvesting, the practice of cutting fruit off the vine just before the grapes begin to color, to increase the ability of the remaining grapes to become fully ripe. This is nowadays a pretty standard practice amongst folks making high quality red wine. Roberto does green harvesting not only for all of his Barolo but also on down to this wine, his Dolcetto. The 2016 Roberto Voerzio “Priavino” Dolcetto d’Alba is all organically farmed and is fermented with indigenous yeast in stainless steel tanks; this wine doesn’t see any wood aging or any fining or filtering. This wine is full of ebullient fruit, lots of ripe blueberry. It is bold and dramatically displayed with an excellent mid palate, a touch of tannin to frame it, and a long and balanced finish. I love Dolcetto this time of the year. With the weather a bit blustery and cool, my go-to is a plate of grilled sausage and polenta. A simpler and better match there is not!
