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.
