Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2004 Barbera d'Alba Riserva Pozzo dell'Annunziata explodes from the glass with layers of vibrant black cherries, plums, violets, smoke, minerals and sweet toasted oak. It is a restrained, cool Barbera Pozzo, yet it offers outstanding purity of expression, with silky, finessed tannins that caress the palate in an extraordinary display of elegance that transcends varietal. Voerzio also opened a bottle of the 2003, which he prefers, for comparison. It may be the more pleasurable wine today, but the 2004 is a notch or two above when it comes to potential. The 2004 saw 16 months of oak versus the 2003, which spent two years in oak. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2019. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

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 Italy (Other): There are dozens of grape varietals grown in Italy so no wonder they produce such a broad range of most exquisite wines. Some of the most cultivated red varieties are Nebbiolo, Aglianico, Sangiovese, and Barbera, while Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are also popular. Among whites, you're likely to find Pinot Grigio, Trebbiano, or Vernaccia varietals.
Varietal Barbera: Barbera has been in the three most frequently planted varietals in Italy and has seen more than its fair share of blend compositions. When allowed to produce a high yield, a lot of the richness and delicate flavor are lost, in favor of excessive acidity. However, with proper nurturing and pruning, a low-yield batch of Barbera grapes can produce what we can only describe as magic.
