Vinous – 90
Roberto Voerzio’s 2017 Barolo Cerequio comes across as washed out, with only modest depth and little expression of place. Barolos from Cerequio all have distinctive signatures, very few of which are present here. In its best vintages, the Voerzio is an exhilarating, thrilling Barolo. I see none of that here. Perhaps the 2017 will be better once the searing tannins soften. We will see.
