There's lots of sweet up front fruit in this wine, which points to it being thoroughly modern in style. Aromas of dark brambly berries and dark cherries adorn the nose, along with hints of tobacco, black licorice and earthiness. The palate is quite rich and tight with more licorice and almost leathery tastes under the dark fruits, firm tannins, bright acidity, and a dry, taut finish. As with most Barolos this one will benefit from time.
The Burlotto wines reflect the traditions of Barolo and the terroir of Verduno, which has always given great balance, elegance and drinkability. Wines which can be consumed young but which will evolve magnificently in bottle.
The wine is matured for around 2 1/2 years in Slavonian and Allier oak casks, holding 35-50 hectolitres (where the malolactic fermentation also takes place). Bottling is normally undertaken in August, and the wine rests in the cellar for a minimum of 12 months following bottling.
