(AG=93) Voerzio's 2010 Merlot graces the palate with sage, menthol, licorice, tobacco, spices, graphite and plums. In this vintage, the Merlot is delicate, aromatic and impeccably nuanced from start to finish, with less of the structure of Barolos but all of the class. (JS=92) Loads of black olive and blackberry character with hints of chili. Medium to full body, fresh herb and berry flavors. Slightly angular tannins and a flavorful finish. Just opening to be ready to drink now. An outstanding merlot from one of the great producers of Barolo. Drink or hold.
