Burlotto Barolo 2015
Burlotto is one of the Langhe's great historical estates. Giovan Battista Burlotto began estate bottling Barolo in the late 1800s. He purchased prime plots in two of the zone's most famous vineyards: Cannubi and Monvigliero.
WA94: This estate captures the very essence of Barolo from Verduno, that, to my palate, also shows a hint of wildness or maybe some exotic character. Winemaking at Comm. G.B. Burlotto is traditional, and for this reason, those territory-specific aromas are even more pronounced and easy to recognize. If you had to settle with one Barolo "base" (I know the producers hate this descriptor used for non-vineyard specific Barolo) for the rest of your life, the 2015 Barolo would definitely do the trick. The wine delivers intensity and grace, with pretty background detailing of spice, crushed stone and ash.
JS92: Very aromatic with sliced strawberries and cherries and hints of tangerines on the nose. Full body. Rich and juicy and a flavorful finish.
VM92: 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. - Vinous Media
