Burlotto Barolo 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Wild strawberries with a slightly jammy cast are joined by notes of muskmelon, cinnamon, and rose petals with just a hint of cooling mint and tar on the nose. Bright in the mouth, this has a super fine tannin structure contributing gorgeous texture to the super sour cherry and slightly red currant tinged fruit. Snowing nice length, and gaining savory accents on the strawberry seed finish with a hint of red fruit on the return, this does show a bit of walnutty tannin on the finale. Fairly big power and excellent freshness. 91pts

Our wines are created in an ancient structure, which surrounds an interior garden. Fermentation takes place in a wide area with huge windows, in barrels of French Oak which of 50 to 70 hectoliters and the temperature of the musts can be controlled. In the adjacent area, steels containers are used for the lactic fermentation and for the last phase of aging wines. The aging is done in two brick vaulted cellars: one is only partly underground which has thermal variations particularly adapted for stabilizing the wines, housing the wines to be consumed when young (Pelaverga, Dolcetto and Barbera.), the other cellar is totally underground and has 80% humidity with a constant temperature, used for the delicate phase of aging in wooden caskets for the most important wines like our Barolo. After bottling, the wines complete the aging process and the bottles are piled for settling, before labeling and packaging. Read less
