SKU 04249


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.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Barolo Cerequio shows gorgeous balance and transparency in its perfumed red fruit. The wine continues to gain weight as it sits in the glass, but like all of Voerzio's 2005s, it remains somewhat restrained in style, with less of the inner perfume and rich texture that defines the very finest years. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.

Wine SpectatorOffers strawberry, cedar and flowers on the nose. Full-bodied, with a solid core of ripe fruit that builds to big, polished tannins. Very rich and powerful, with pure fruit. Best after 2013. 330 cases made.
