Burlotto Dolcetto d'Alba 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Spends a few months in botte Plum skins, shoe black, and a floral extract come together on the nose. Onentry this offers a huge punch of elegant, fresh pure and simple fruit that makes this seem to be a bit on the fruity side with supple small ripe tannins, black plum fruit and a little edge of black raspberry. Turning more delicate and fine on the backend that comes on with a pop of fruit and a very subtle bitter edge, hinting at that bitter almond note in the finale. 88pts

Our wines are created in an ancient structure, which surrounds an interior garden. Fermentation takes place in a wide area with huge windows, in barrels of French Oak which of 50 to 70 hectoliters and the temperature of the musts can be controlled. In the adjacent area, steels containers are used for the lactic fermentation and for the last phase of aging wines. The aging is done in two brick vaulted cellars: one is only partly underground which has thermal variations particularly adapted for stabilizing the wines, housing the wines to be consumed when young (Pelaverga, Dolcetto and Barbera.), the other cellar is totally underground and has 80% humidity with a constant temperature, used for the delicate phase of aging in wooden caskets for the most important wines like our Barolo. After bottling, the wines complete the aging process and the bottles are piled for settling, before labeling and packaging. Read less
