Barolo Classico Burlotto 2013, Natural Wine, the classic Barolo, long maceration, old 'Botti', elegant, fresh, will age, notes of mint, leather and spicy fruit. The entry level Barolo is anything but entry level. The nose is fine and classic and the palate expresses layers of warm sweet Nebbiolo fruit and earthy complexity which bode well for its future development. Beautiful wine for those who love Nebbiolo in its most traditional form. 2013 was a great vintage for Fabio so this wine should go a long way.

The Burlotto family have been making wine in Verduno since 1850. GB Burlotto pioneered selling Barolo in bottle (not cask or demijohn), predating even Giacomo Conterno’s Barolo Monfortino. And as official supplier to the Royal House of Savoy—which once ruled Piemonte—he not only achieved personal fame, he made his village of Verduno as renowned as Serralunga or La Morra. After a period in doldrums after GB's death, the Burlotto estate's star in now firmly back in ascendancy under the tutelage of GB's grandson Fabio Alessandria. The key is tradition all the way and that means no heavy extraction or new oak. Nebbiolo is basically a delicate variety like Pinot Noir, and its sensual aromas should not be covered by great big wafts of wood! Fine Barolo although heady and rich also has a finesse and delicacy to it which defies its reputation as being a beast. Structured yes, tannins, yes, acidity certainly, longevity absolutely, alcohol more often than not and complexity without doubt but....no big deep colours and no thick inky wine with loads of sticky body and dry extract. Barolo is the Wine of Kings, King of Wines and as such it must have restraint and finesse, it needs time for a great Barolo to truly show its full character. When it does the drinker is truly in for a treat. Burlotto boasts 30 acres of vineyard in Verduno, Barolo village and Roddi. They make over 10 different wines and production of each one is small, for Barolo between 5000 and 10 000 bottles depending on the vintage. They also make 3 cru Barolo wines from the famous vineyards of Monvigliero, Cannubi and Acclivi and a range of other stunning varietal wines including Barbera, Dolcetto and the rare autocthonous variety Pelaverga.
