James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, January 2013
Aromas of tar, spices and dark fruits. Full-bodied and very layered, with polished tannins and a savory finish of ripe fruit and dried spices. Lasts a very long time on the palate. Drink now or hold.

Vorezio offers new perspective on one of Piedmont’s most popular red grapes. The 2008 Barbera d’Alba Riserva Vigneto Pozzo dell’Annunziata (tasted in a magnum) delivers impressive sophistication to Barbera. Careful barrel aging has shaped aromas of bacon fat, smoke, underbrush, rum cake and bitter chocolate. The wine shows impeccable smoothness and elegance in the mouth, with a spicy acidic accent that will appeal to die-hard Barbera enthusiasts. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. - Monica Larner

Primary aromas of black cherry, licorice, menthol and violet. Boasts uncanny sweetness and density, with fresh acidity giving the wine lovely inner-mouth tension and a firm structure. In a powerful, virile style, finishing with a whiplash of dark fruits and flowers. Voerzio farms his barbera like his nebbiolo vines. They're planted at very high density (up to 8,000 plants per hectare), and each vine ultimately yields between 500 and 700 grams of fruit. Incidentally, there is no 2009 Pozzo as the wine couldn't finish its fermentation. - Stephen Tanzer

A suave, modern style, with ample spice backing cherry, raspberry and licorice flavors. This gets more savory as the long finish unfolds, with an aftertaste of mineral and spice. Fresh and defined. Drink now through 2017... A suave, modern style, with ample spice backing cherry, raspberry and licorice flavors.
