Langhe G.B. Burlotto 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very herbal on the nose with great fresh tones of fresh strawberry tops and gravelly mineral tones. Astringent and bracing smelling, like an aftershave should. Smooth on entry with absolutely velvety tannins on the palate that gives this medium-bodied wine real mouth presence. This offers up orange rind, rosehip, and dusty cherry fruit on the mid-palate with brilliant precision. It is wonderfully pure and complete and yet all about the fruit draped transparently over clear soil tones. The finish is a touch short but otherwise this is great stuff. 90pts

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
