Today the 2008 comes across as surprisingly dark and masculine. The high-toned floral notes that are typical of this site have been replaced by a much darker brooding register filled with tar incense and black fruit notes. The wine freshens up beautifully with time in the glass as the aromatics become a bit more expressive. Voerzio's 2008 La Serra is a huge and hugely promising wine. The firm tannins argue for at least a few more years in bottle. A hint of rose petal lingers on the intense finish. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028. 96+ -Antonio Galloni

The tar, eucalyptus and ripe raisin aromas and flavors turn toward sandalwood, coffee and spice notes with aeration. Broad-shouldered, complex and powerful, featuring sweet fruit and a supple texture. Lively, refined tannins mark the finish. Best from 2017 through 2027. – BS

Subtle aromas of blueberries and porcini mushrooms follow through to a full body, with soft and silky tannins and a delicate chocolate and berry aftertaste. Hard not to drink now but will improve with age.
