Comm.G.B.Burlotto "Acclivi" Barolo, Italy 2017
Burlotto is synonymous with the town of Verduno, in Barolo. In rare fashion, all of their wines are incredibly sought-after, as they give the same care to a single-vineyard Barolo as they do their Freisa. Speaking of Freisa, Verduno is also home to the great Palaverga grape, which like Freisa is a very fragrant, easy-drinking wine that is so tasty - and Burlotto is the master of it. They have been innovators in Barolo since their inception in the 19th century and were the sole supplier of wine to the house of Savoy. They were also the first to perfect Barolo in the bottle, long before most switched from using demi-john. The Acclivi is a Barolo which is a blend of all their crus - Cannubi, Monvigliero, and their other vineyards. It captures the essence of them all, which is the elegance the wines interpret from the marl soil of Verduno. This vineyard blend is a thing of beauty!
