The world of Italian wine embraces Roberto Voerzio

In the world of Barolo, Langa, and the entire world of Italian wine, Roberto Voerzio remains an undisputed shining star and one of its most free-spirited and authentic figures.

Today, that world warmly embraces Roberto and his son Davide and stands by them in solidarity.

Terrible grief has struck — perhaps the cruelest of all — in the home of this great vigneron of La Morra.

After a long illness, his wife Pinuccia died on Sunday. His friend and life-long companion, his tireless supporter in a thousand adventures, a splendid, smiling person who will always be remembered happily in the hearts of those who had the good fortune to know her.

May the earth rest lightly on you and may you rest in peace, Pinuccia.

A memorial service will be held today at 4 p.m. in La Morra.

—Franco Ziliani
