2005 Barolo La Serra, Gianni Voerzio, Piedmont
La Serra lies above the vineyards of Fossati and Case Nere and to the west of fabled Brunate. The colour of the 2005 is deep, with a lovely nose of spice and red fruits. This has the usual La Morra finesse, but in Gianni Voerzio's hands it takes on additional elegance. Gentle, but fine; with real grip, yet not aggressive. Very well balanced, with an impressive finish.
