G.B. BURLOTTO Barolo Cannubi 2018

Burlotto is now considered one of Piemonte’s great small producers, thanks to the brilliant and highly traditional winemaking of G.B.’s great-great-grandson, Fabio Alessandria.

To some Barolo represents the very pinnacle of Italian wine.


Today, Fabio Alessandria is following in the footsteps of his renowned ancestor Giovan Battista (G.B.) Burlotto who was one of the great figures of Barolo from the mid-19th century until his death in 1927.
G.B.’s wines were supplied to the Royal Court of Savoy and he was a pioneer in sending finished, bottled wines directly to their customers – rather than in bulk.

Rooted in tradition, without being stuck in the past, the flagship wine still comes from the incredible Barolo Monvigliero vineyard in the village of Verduno.
The labels still have the feel of those in G.B.’s day; the grapes are still foot-trodden, and the musts undergo 60 day macerations before long ageing in large botte.
All this wines are as highly regarded today as in G.B.’s time.
Their crystalline freshness and purity of fruit continues to strike the perfect chord for lovers of great Piedmont wines.


This splendid Barolo comes from Nebbiolo grapes grown in the renowned Cannubi Vineyard, a real Crù from the Municipality of Barolo; the vinification involves a 15-day fermentation-maceration in French oak vats, with daily pumping over and punching down, then the wine matures for about 10 months in 3-5 Hl barrels (where it also carries out malolactic fermentation) and for about 20 months in French and Slovenian oak barrels of 35 Hl.
