Tasting Notes

Made with whole-cluster fermentation, the Comm. G.B. Burlotto 2016 Barolo Monvigliero opens to distinctive intensity with floral notes backed by forest berry and bramble. Including the grape stems in fermentation imparts a slightly herbaceous character with eucalyptus and balsam herb. I also pick up on some freshly milled white pepper that reminds me of the Nebbiolo-adjacent Pelaverga grape that is also commonly planted in Verduno. The wine opens slowly to reveal grilled herbs, toasted chia seed and pistachio nut. More than obvious fruit, the core of the wine offers wild rose, lavender and pressed flowers. Production is approximately 8,000 bottles. 2024-2055

Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, July 2020

Verduno. 3,700 bottles produced. Whole-bunch fermentation. Enticing deep nose with exotic, spicy notes and fantastic concentration of cherry fruit, but more deep than sweet or overdone. Succulent and a little vibrant, with a slow opening of the fruit on the palate and with fine, grainy, long, tactile tannins on a slow and deep finish. Perfect balance. 2024-2036
