BURLOTTO 2012 BARBERA D'ALBA

During his seventy-seven years as a winemaker (1850-1927), Giovan Battista Burlotto’s accomplishments were rivaled only by those of Biondi-Santi and Vega Sicilia, as he achieved superstardom in a world dominated by French wines.G.B.'s death in 1927 not only took away Burlotto's driving force, it also deprived Verduno of its greatest champion. And so both faded into obscurity in the decades that followed. But now, with G.B.'s great-great-grandson Fabio Alessandria as winemaker, Burlotto's star is again rising, reclaiming its position as one of Piedmont's great small producers.From the same vineyards as the Barolos, but with shorter wood aging, Fabio produces his fantastic Barbera d'Alba. All of Fabio's wines display astonishing purity, a wonderful rich texture and pristine aromatics.
