BURLOTTO 2013 LANGHE NEBBIOLO

Grown exposed to the Alps winds, this Nebbiolo comes from the coolest growing zone in the Barolo appellation. The Nebbiolo is made from the younger vines (between 10 and 20 years) of the Monvigliero and Acclivi crus. The difference between the Burlotto Nebbiolo and their famed Baroli is a shorter time in wood. The wine ages for 2 ½ years in Slavonian and Allier large oak casks.

Its vibrant red color is reminiscent of a fine Burgundy, with flavors of Morello cherry, violets, and with medium acidity and palate weight. Lingering notes of wood spice, rose petal, and hint of orange peel on the finish defines it as Nebbiolo. This has enough heft to accompany roasts, but juicy enough for a well-made burger, so it could easily become your house wine, or stow a bottle of this in your cellar for a year and reap the benefits.

Burlotto is a historical winery that goes back to 1850, when G.B. (Giovan Battista) Burlotto founded the winery, in the Piedmontese village of Verduno. Mr. Burlotto’s achievements were only rivaled by Biondi-Santi and Vega-Sicilia, as he gained superstar status in a world dominated by French wines. Among his other achievements, G.B. was the first in the area to bottle his wine (as opposed to distributing by cask) and he also became the official supplier to the Royal House of Savoy, which once ruled Piedmont, as well as becoming “The Only Supplier to the Duke of Abruzzi’s Arctic Expedition to the North Pole.”
