VM: Voerzio’s 1999 Barolo Cerequio wraps around the palate with endless layers of fruit. The 1999 is still incredibly fresh and primary, with fabulous intensity and just the barest hints of tertiary complexity. Sweet floral notes meld into spice and red toned fruit, all supported by incisive 1999 tannins that cause the wine to clamp up a bit in the glass. A wine that is both incredibly sexy yet powerful, the Cerequio dazzles from the very first taste.
