Proprietor: Marina Burlotto
Winemaker: Fabio Alessandria
Burlotto is one of the Langhe’s great, historical domaines. Giovan Battista Burlotto began estate bottling Barolo in the late 1800s. He purchased prime plots in two of the zone’s most famous vineyards, Cannubi and Monvigliero. Aside from the Cannubi parcel, most of the
estate’s wines come from vineyards in the village of Verduno, and these wines share a gracefulness and aromatic profile that is unique in the world of Barolo. The estate was a key proponent of the local Pelaverga grape – an ancient variety grown by the family since 1800 – and is primarily responsible for its continued propagation today.
Soils: Many variations of calcareous marls.
Zone: Barolo (mostly Verduno)
