Vinous – 95
The 2014 Barolo Cerequio is a gorgeous wine that melds together the pliant fruit of Cerequio with bright, savory aromatics. It’s a combination that works so well. The 2014 is a marvelous, complete Barolo that has so much to offer. Macerated cherry, spice, new leather, blood orange and rose petal all flesh out in a striking Barolo that has so much to offer. One of the first wines I tasted from Voerzio was the 1992 Cerequio, a Barolo from a far weaker vintage that aged beautifully. I expect the 2014 will be gorgeous for many years to come. I can’t wait to see how it ages.
Anticipated maturity: 2024-2029
Robert Parker – 94
“Like its cousins from the other crus reviewed here, the 2014 Barolo Cerequio must be given ample time to open. Better yet, give it another ten years of cellar aging, if not more. The fruit is rigid, tonic and tight with very fine aromas of cassis, sour cherry, balsam herb and crushed river stone. This wine is tightly wound around itself, with fruit nuances locked into a tight core. The mouthfeel is lean and long with that same tension and tightness. We can count on this wine to gain in volume and complexity as time marches by.”
