2004 Voerzio Barolo Cerequio
The 2004 Barolo Cerequio has been nothing short of profound on the four previous occasions I have tasted it and it is equally superb now that it is in bottle. It flows from the glass with a beautiful, pure expression of roses, flowers, sweet spices and ripe red fruit. This richly-textured, sumptuous Barolo literally shimmers with fruit from start to finish. The glorious, complete 2004 Cerequio is a superb effort from the inspired Roberto Voerzio. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

Plenty of blackberry, lavender and milk chocolate on the nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. Balanced and pretty. Best after 2011. 530 cases made. –JS

Good full medium red. Lower-toned aromas of plum, menthol, herbs and woodsmoke; less fruity than La Serra. Then spicy and quite tight in the mouth, with its oaky side and strong underlying structure currently dominating. A bit awkward from the late August bottling, with its floral and fruity elements currently in the deep background, but this appears to have an even firmer structure than La Serra. The big tannins reach the incisors. 92(+?) 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.
