Winery Tasting Notes

Made from Barbera grape, an important black grape of Piedmont, The wine is deep ruby in colour, mouthfilling red fruit characters like cherries and raspberries. Full bodied, the wine is rich but has gentle tannin and pronounced acidity.

The Burlotto Barbera d’Alba is a blend of estate Barbera vineyards located in Verduno and Cadia in Roddi. The grapes are sourced from vineyards situated at between 280 and 380 m.a.s.l. with southern and western exposure. The soils are a combination of calcareous limestone tending to clay. The vines are pruned guyot, at an average of 4,500 – 5,000 vines per hectare. The vineyards under production are on average 10 to 45 years of age. The average yields are 70 to 80 quintals (1 quintal = 100 kg) depending on the vintage. The grapes are hand-harvested during the first half of October.

Vinification requires a maceration-fermentation of almost 7 days in vats of French oak, with pumping over, remixing and re-submerging the wine on a daily basis, as well as temperature control, which should not exceed 27 -28 degrees. By achieving malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats, the wine matures for some months in Slavonian and Allier oak casks, holding 35-50 hectoliters.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Azienda Vitivinicola Comm. G. B. Burlotto was founded in the latter part of the1800’s by Commenditore Giovan Battista Burlotto. In a time when most winesfrom the Langhe were still sold in bulk or in demijohns, Giovan Battiste wasawarded no less than 32 medals for his wines, medals which still adorn the façadeof the Burlotto cantina in Verduno. Perhaps most importantly, Giovan Battistarecognized the importance of site, and purchased vineyard in the most highlyconsidered slopes such as Monvigliero (Verduno) and Cannubi (Barolo). Todaythe estate remains the ownership of his granddaughter Marina Burlotto and herhusband Giuseppe Alessandria, and their son Fabio Alessandria (with degrees inviticulture and enology) runs the vineyards and winery. The Burlotto wines reflectthe traditions of Barolo and the terroir of Verduno, which has always given greatbalance, elegance and drinkability. Wines which can be consumed young but whichwill evolve magnificently in bottle.
