Sokolin 1990 Roberto Voerzio Barolo Cerequio Tasting Notes:

Another impressive showing from Rieussec, this wine is practically a must-buy if you're an avid fan of Sauternes. Its fabulous, deep gold color lures you in effortlessly, but this trap is not malicious. On the nose, you're blessed with a potent, enchanting aromatic cocktail featuring tangerine, red grapefruit, caramel, flowers, and candied fruit. The rich, almost impossibly sweet wine shows no signs of fatigue as it surges across your palate in a swirling gush of ripe, powerful fruit flavor. The texture is as smooth as you'd expect, but it displays an astounding amount of complexity, enough to fuel a conversation for hours on end. By the time you arrive at the finish, even more, aromatics enter the fray, ranging from hazelnuts to marzipan. The acidity is tasteful and just precise enough to give the wine some lovely balance. Uncork this beauty in front of friends and watch their jaws drop as they experience true enlightenment.

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.
Producer R.Voerzio: When it comes to pure, mouth-watering Barolo wines, Cantina Roberto Voerzio sets an incredibly high standard. Indeed, one could get away with comparing any other Barolo to these masterpieces, and not many would come close. With delicate yet strong notes of truffle, mushrooms, generous smoke, and an earthy leather undertone, everything you could ever want from this type of wine is present. The depth and intensity of the fruit are perfect, and wine scholars could use this winery to write a thesis on why a low-yield approach is best. If you're interested in sampling one of the finest Barolos that has ever existed, Cantina Roberto Voerzio is a very safe choice. In the wake of sometimes excessive modernization, wineries like this demonstrate the value of tradition in the world of fine wine.

Region Piedmont: Italian culture values the unbreakable bond we share with family and very few things showcase that connection quite like a shared meal. Therefore, it's only natural that wine would also take its place as an important cultural aspect. Fine Italian produce always goes well with a variety of dishes, and that makes these wines an incredibly popular choice among wine enthusiasts who appreciate a good get-together. The foothills of the Alps help define this region's significantly colder, continental winter climate, but during the summer, the conditions are similar to the region of Burgundy. Flavor-wise, this region has a mind-boggling variety to offer. Not only is there a healthy selection of approved grapes to work with, but the soil often varies from estate to estate, letting every wine stand out. Expect to encounter powerful notes of rose petal flavor, spices, cherries, dried herbs, anise, and many more. Every bottle has a story to tell. Those of you with a tendency to hoard and collect fine wines will be especially intrigued, as Piedmont wines tend to mature extremely well, developing nuance and becoming more and more delicious as time goes on.
Type of Wine Barolo: Barolo have cemented their spot as one of Italy's most famous and desirable achievements, decorating the cellars of every serious wine collector. While the grape they're made from is rather dark and dusty-looking, the elixir that comes from this varietal is an almost crystal clear, light red, like a pair of seductive lips glistening in the candlelight.
