Barolo DOCG, Piedmont

The Burlotto Barolo is sourced from vineyards varying in exposure from east to south to west, at altitudes ranging from 270 to 350 m.a.s.l. The soils are a combination of calcareous limestone tending to clay. The vines are pruned guyot, at an average of 4,500 vines per hectare. The vineyards under production range from 10 to 40 years of age. The average yields are from 50 to 70 quintals (1 quintal = 100 kg) depending on the vintage. The grapes are hand-harvested during the second week of October.

Expert Reviews

The 2008 Barolo shows good up-front sweetness and richness in its dark fruit, sweet herbs, flowers and spices. Hints of tobacco and licorice develop in the glass, adding further complexity and nuance. This is an excellent introduction to the house style of one of Barolo’s most idiosyncratic producers. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.

This is another strong set of wines from Burlotto. Over the last few years the winery seems to have made a major jump in quality. The traditional style here remains a bit quirky but readers who are willing to take some time to explore these Baroli will be amply rewarded.

Winery Tasting Notes


Vinification involves a maceration-fermentation of about 2-3 weeks in large vats of French oak, with pumping over, remixing and re-submerging the wine on a daily basis. Temperature control is used if required.

The wine is matured for around 2 ½ years in Slavonian and Allier oak casks, holding 35-50 hectolitres (where the malolactic fermentation also takes place). Bottling is normally undertaken in August, and the wine rests in the cellar for a minimum of 12 months following bottling.

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.
