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.

Winery Tasting Notes
The Burlotto wines reflect the traditions of Barolo and the terroir of Verduno, which has always given great balance, elegance and drinkability. Wines which can be consumed young but which will evolve magnificently in bottle.
The wine is matured for around 2 1/2 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.
