Professional Wine Reviews for Roberto Voerzio Barolo Riserva Vechie Capalot Brunate 2003

Rated 94 by Wine Spectator
Loads of fresh, ripe strawberry on the nose, with lemony undertones. Full-bodied, with big, silky tannins and a long, long finish. Racy and structured. Best after 2011. 150 cases made.
Rated 93 by Robert Parker
Voerzio’s 2003 Barolo Riserva Vecchie Viti dei Capalot e delle Brunate is a dark, brooding wine with balsamic notes woven into its massive, powerful frame. Big, sweet and long, this massively concentrated, structured Barolo will require patience, but it clearly has enough stuffing and freshness to continue to develop positively...

Additional Information on Roberto Voerzio Barolo Riserva Vechie Capalot Brunate 2003

Winery: Roberto Voerzio

Varietal: Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo grapes have been grown for centuries in the hilly region of northern Italy, and have more recently started to appear in many New World countries, too, where modern vintners have expressed great enthusiasm for their fine characteristics. Their fame and popularity is widely known, and the Nebbiolo varietal is recognized as the grape responsible for producing the legendary fine wines of Italy. Indeed, this grape is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, ranging from truffle and prune, to tobacco and violets, making the wines they produce a sensory delight which simply get better the longer they are aged. The grapes also lend a beautifully pale red color to their wines, which helped secure their place as some of the finest and most elegant to be found anywhere on earth.

Region: Piedmont

For hundreds of years, the beautiful alpine region of Piedmont in north-west Italy has been producing excellent quality red wines, and some of the most characterful sparkling white wines to have ever come out of the Old World. The region is dominated by the mighty Alps which form the border between Italy, France and Switzerland, and the Moscato grapes that are grown in the foothills of this mountain range carry much of the Alps' flavors in their fruit, and are fed by crystal clear mountain waters. However, it is the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which are the real stars of this region, and the highly respected wineries which cover much of Piedmont have generations of experience when it comes to processing and aging these grape varietals to produce the superb wines which come out of appellations such as Barolo and Barberesco.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.

Appellation: Barolo

There are few wine producing countries in the world quite as famous or loved as Italy, and within Italy, one small region seems to stand head and shoulders above all others. The hilly, misty sub-region of Barolo is home to many of Italy's finest traditional wineries, and it enjoys a reputation for excellence and quality unmatched by any other place in the country. The secret to Barolo's success is down to the mineral rich soils and cool, foggy climatic conditions which allow the Nebbiolo grape to grow so well, and express so much flavor and complexity. As such, the red wines of Barolo have become a benchmark for high quality, traditionally made and bottled Italian wines, and are dearly loved all around the world.
