Burlotto Elatis Rosato 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A Vino da Tavola blend of 55% Nebbiolo/ 35% Pelaverga/ 10% Barbera. 2.9% RS A little yeasty on the nose with notes of green watermelon, dry herbs, strawberry and a touch of sandy glass. The sugar shows up on the entry with is obviously but balanced by a touch of tannin and good supporting acidity so it adds more weight that sweetness to the soft, cherried red fruits on the mid-palate. Develops a bit of sweet spices that recalls cinnamon and has an edge of pink peppercorn leading to the finale, which offers exuberant waves of fruit. Finishes long for a rose revealing a touch of minerality that balances out the watermelon candy tones nicely. What every white Zin wishes it were! This is one happy wine. 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
