2015 G B Burlotto

Grapes Nebbiolo
Colour Red
Origin Italy, Piedmont
ABV 14.5%

Some lovely density to the aromatics here, tar, roses, wild strawberry, bitter orange and herb notes. The palate has concentration, depth, with a rich tannic core. Red fruits, tar and herbs once more with a floral back note, with delicious aid lift and balance, superb. L&S (Jan 2019)

Very aromatic with sliced strawberries and cherries and hints of tangerines on the nose. Full body. Rich and juicy and a flavorful finish. Drink in 2022. Rating: 92 James Suckling, 2019)

Burlotto's 2015 Barolo is absolutely gorgeous. Pliant and open-knit, the straight Barolo captures all of the natural richness of the vintage. Succulent red cherry, plum, lavender, rose petal, spice and new leather all meld together in a supple, inviting Barolo that will be impossible to resist in its youth. This is such a beautiful and alluring wine. The base of the Burlotto Barolo is built on Breri, which is adjacent to Monvigliero, plus the portions of Rocche dell' Olmo and Neirane that don't make it into the Acclivi. This is a positively stellar wine. Don't miss it. Drinking range: 2023 - 2040 Rating: 92 Antonio Galloni, 2019)

G B Burlotto

Today, Fabio Alessandria is following in the footsteps of his renowned ancestor Giovan Battista (G.B.) Burlotto who was one of the great figures of Barolo from the mid-19th century until his death in 1927. G.B.'s wines were supplied to the Royal Court of Savoy and he was a pioneer in sending finished, bottled wines directly to their customers - rather than in bulk.

The 'farmhouse' which run as a agriturismo is named 'Locanda dell’orso bevitore' taking the name from a 19th century cartoon of G.B. drinking his wine with a polar bear, after he was made sole supplier of wine to the Duke of Abruzzo's North Pole expedition of 1899.

Rooted in tradition, without being stuck in the past, the flagship wine still comes from the incredible Barolo Monvigliero vineyard in the village of Verduno. The labels still have the feel of those in G.B.'s day, the grapes are still foot-trodden, and the musts undergo 60 day macerations before long ageing in large botte. The wines are as highly regarded today as in G.B.'s time - and having dodged the recent craze for over extraction and over-oaking here in some cellars of Barolo - their crystalline freshness and purity of fruit continues to strike the perfect chord for lovers of great Piedmont wines.
