Editorial Reviews for Burlotto Barolo Neirane
This opens like a remarkable example of Cote Rotie with notes of olives, flowers, red raspberry fruit and an undertone of dried strawberry. With air notes of tar and tobacco emerge and add complexity. In the mouth this is somewhat small scaled but with great focus in a smooth, medium full bodies style with supple wild cherry fruit and light spice tones on the mid-palate that yield to notes of citron and strawberry on the finish. A wonderful bottle at maturity with a wonderful, fleshy feel 91pts
Exotic on the nose with it’s mélange of olive, thyme, anise seed, and black raspberry fruit. In the mouth this is rich with cherry fruit layered with earth and leather all wrapped in a dense silky, succulent package. The inner mouth perfumes of rosehips in alcohol and black fruits add to the complexity and depth here, which drives through the long, aromatic black-fruited finish. Just so distinctive. 93pts
Intense notes of incense and candlewax immediately emerge from the glass joined by dark, smoky, slightly jammy fruits with complicating notes of fish sauce, underbrush, tapenade, thyme and olive oil. In the mouth he tannins are delicate and light if abundant giving the wine a velvety texture. The rosehip and wild cherry fruit is framed by vitamin like mineral notes and a wonderful inner mouth perfume of roses and tapenade. Still youthful this is emerging from its shell and has a very promising future. 93pts.
Orange red amber in color which comes across as slightly more advanced than its age. At first opening an intense aroma of herbal tea with honey and lavender but as the hours wear the details begin to show black olives, dried flowers, tobacco and roasted chestnuts. This gorgeous Barolo glides across the palate and shows a wonderful coming of age for this emerging wine showing olive, meat broth, minerals, mushrooms and a bit of cherry fruit. The finish is long and coats your mouth with cherry, savory broth and minerals. WOW!
The nose showed black olive tapenade with mineral penny and dusty sour cherry. The first impression on the palate is how this wine starts sour and as it works its way across the palate, becomes massive. Flavors of cranberry and wild berries with an herbal quality linger on the long finish and gives way to a tannic tug on your palate.
This is what I love about Barolo. A wine you can spend the entire night with and never tire of. Each sip is sensual and fulfilling. Each sniff seems to go on for minutes and you never tire of it. Very much the case with the 1995 Butlotto Barolo Monvigliero. The nose is probably not for everyone but it's perfect for me. Intense olive tapenade, strawberry patch, tobacco leaf and cedar. The palate is full, even soft after being opened for many hours but so enjoyable with sweet red fruit, minerally soil and a bit of iodine. The finish is long and subtle but consistent. A great bottle of wine that is really in a great drinking window.
Prominent berry, cherry nose. Medium bodies with dried plum taste. Subtle and balanced taninics. Acidity comes out gradually in middle of palate. Long after taste with fruity finish.
