2001 Voerzio Barolo Cerequio
The 2001 Barolo Cerequio comes across as rich, round, seamless and pretty. Here, too, the aromas and flavors are just a bit forwad, but there is more than enough density to support another decade of aging. The wine comes together beautifully with time in the glass. Sweet rose petals, spices and licorice wrap around the big, seamless finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021.

This is beautiful, with plum, floral, violet and light vanilla aromas. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and supersilky tannins. Goes on and on. Racy and classy with wonderful subtlety. Best after 2009. 400 cases made. –JS

Good deep red. Nuanced nose combines raspberry, woodsmoke and an intriguing element of roasted herbs. Sweeter than the Brunate and higher-pitched, with strawberry and cherry fruit enlivened by balsamic and eucalyptus notes. Very complex, juicy wine that's currently a bit more typically backward than the Brunate, and just beginning to unfold. The big but ripe tannins arrive very late, allowing the fruit to expand on the back end. 94(+?) points

Intense ruby red in color, with garnet hues. Fresh and complex aromas of macerated cherries, plums, dried roses, minerals and spices surround a terrific concentration and depth. This Barolo is creamy and broad, racy and refined. The flavors explode with a supple and persistent roundness. The finish is long and elegant with fine-grained tannins. Fruit is everywhere! Recommended with rich fare, such as truffle scented dishes, roast beef, fillet mignon and medium-aged cheeses. This is a masterful Barolo, long-lived and beautiful.
