In 1987 Roberto Voerzio decided to leave his family's wine business and strike out on his own. With the help of his wife, he undertook the slow and arduous task of purchasing and leasing some of the best vineyards for first growth Barolo.
One of the hallmarks of Voerzio’s viticultural practice is the meticulous care and attention he lavishes on each vine. Cultivation methods are simple: fertilization is carried out by hand so that the health of each plant is individually addressed. This establishes a perfect equilibrium in the vineyards and allows for uniform maturation of all the vines. High density planting, a trade mark of Voerzio’s vineyard management, translates into extremely low yields. His Barbera vineyards are planted with up to 3,240 vines per acre, and his Nebbiolo vineyards at 1,618 vines per acre. For some of his flagship wines Roberto Voerzio often harvests only a couple of grape clusters per vine.
This extremely attentive approach to viticulture has earned Roberto Voerzio numerous accolades, and his wines are considered authentic masterpieces, sought-after by collectors and wine lovers worldwide.
First produced in 1987, this wine is made in very small quantities (only 8,000 bottles are produced every vintage). Made from 100% Nebbiolo grown in the San Francesco and Fontanazza vineyards. The wine spends 18 months in oak followed by six months in bottle.
