Voghera Vino Barolo 1967

13% 720ml


I bought this wine in the hopes that this was from the Voghera vineyard in Serralunga as it's often that wineries were named after the vineyard/farm. Voghera is currently made by Azelia. Brovia makes Ca'mia in the Brea vineyard next to it and sometimes they were thought of as one. The Voghera winery is still active in the town of Barbaresco but not sure if they still make a Barolo, only Barbaresco. It almost looks like the tower of Serralunga on the label but can't say for sure where this wine was from and the winery didn't respond either to my query. The label lists the winery as being in Barbaresco.

Decanted for 30 minutes. The cork fell into the wine when I used the pronged remover.

"Very sweet and poignant nose. Deep black cherry. Nose better than the palate. Mushrooms. Good but lacks a little something. Gets better. Excellent black cherry nose. Great balance. I could smell the black cherry all night. Definitely Serralunga. Delicate and smooth. Lacks concentration. Simple. Good but simple. Really picked up on the last sip. Deep black cherry".


Despite the last sip, my wife and I agreed that there wasn't enough to the wine - lacked richness and concentration. The wine was not in the least oxidized which was nice. A seemingly well stored bottle. I don't recommend this wine.

Thanks
Fraser

Wow, what a find. FWIW, my great grandfather Benedetto Cuneo and his wife Maria came to the US from the town of Voghera, which is about 33 miles south of Milan, in 1880. Amazing that a 67 can still be drinkable! dc.

Here?

Not that far from Barolo and Barbaresco! Have you ever been to Voghera?

What a great story!

Regarding 1967, I think well-stored bottles with good corks would have a good to very good chance of being drinkable for some time. The Stroppiana (Serralunga) I had a year or two ago was better the next day and was so full of energy and life. Nervi Riserva Gattinara is immortal. The Damiliano '67 I had this year was pretty special as well. Having the 2nd one in a month or so.

nice to hear from you, Dave!

Marc,

I can't help you with your birth year. You're kinda stuck with it.

I've never had one of my birth years wines as it's not a good year and I didn't want to feel like I resembled it.

Didn't the Beatles write a song about it, "They say it's your birth year......"
