Barolo La Serra 1997 Roberto Voerzio
The superb 1996 Barolo La Serra's opaque ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of black fruits (blackberry, cherry, and a hint of raspberry), superb purity, highly extracted, powerful, monster-sized flavors, mouth-searing levels of tannin, and an impressively endowed, 40+ second finish. This backward, pure, intensely concentrated Barolo will require patience.
Winespectator / James Suckling (94)
Takes the wind out of you. A wicked wine with amazing concentration of ripe fruit, tasting of raspberries, cherries and earth. Full-bodied, with masses of fruit and tannins. Long, mouthpuckering finish.
