VM: A magnificent wine when it was young, Roberto Voerzio’s 1999 Barolo La Serra has developed beautifully in bottle. Fresh, floral aromatics abound in a layered, impeccably delineated wine. Sweet rose petals, red berries, spices and mint are wrapped around a core of super-expressive fruit. The usually firm La Serra tannins are nearly covered by the intensity of the fruit. I have always adored the 1999 La Serra, a wine that remains fabulous, with plenty of life ahead.

WA: The 1999 Barolo La Serra has always been a magnificent wine as it is again tonight. I have often felt this Barolo and Voerzio’s other 1999s, signal the first move towards a more elegant and finessed style. Sweet, floral aromatics meld into vibrant layers of mineral-infused dark cherries as the wine opens up in the glass. This young, sweeping Barolo is simply magnificent and one of the very finest La Serras Voerzio has made over the course of his career. Though delicious today, the wine promises to drink beautifully for another 15-20 years. It is superb. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025.

WS: Offers dried fruit, such as fruit cake or trail mix, on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy, fine tannins and a berry, vanilla and coffee bean aftertaste. Needs time to show all the potential here. Best after 2012.
