I love the character of the 2009 Barolo La Serra and was immediately blown away by the beauty of the bouquet. The wine exhibits exotic tones of cumin seed and cardamom that take your senses to an imaginary North African bazaar. The consistency is soft and sensual. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
The wines of Roberto and Davide Voerzio offer a fitting conclusion to this tasting of Piedmont’s best red wines. These are stunning wines that capture, head on, the beauty of the 2009 vintage. They remind us of the dazzling heights achieved by the Nebbiolo grape.
- The 2009 Barolo La Serra impresses for its finesse and balance. There is so much fruit in the 2009 that the angular tannins typical of this site are virtually buried. Sweet floral notes intermingled with mint, raspberries and rose petals all add lift and freshness on the finish. The 2009 opens up beautifully with time in the glass. Today it is wonderfully vivid and alive in the glass.
