THe Winery G.B. Burlotto produces wines which reflect and enhance the characteristics of the terroir of Verduno, which has always produced wines of great balance and elegance.
The Monvigliero is a fine representation of this philosophy. It is extremely pleasant to drink young, but capable enough to evolve harmoniously with added refinement.
"Burlotto's 2009 Barolo Vigneto Monvigliero is exceptional. A creamy, totally layered Barolo, the Monvigliero stands out for its texture. The use of whole clusters in fermentation – highly unusual in Piedmont – gives the 2009 a sense of aromatic lift and brightness that is quite welcome in this hot vintage. An intriguing mélange of tar, licorice and dried flowers leaves a lasting impression. The Monvigliero isn't for everyone as sometimes it can be a bit eccentric, but in 2009 all the elements come together with impeccable grace. There is little doubt this is one of the wines of the vintage."
