Founded in the mid-19th century in the heart of Verduno, Burlotto’s vines are dedicated to indigenous Piemontese varieties, including Barbera, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, and Freisa, known for precision and elegance. This varietal Dolcetto is floral and easy-drinking, marked by notes of earthy violets, herb spice, and purple fruit. Great with pizza, pasta, or game.
During his 77 years as a winemaker (1850-1927), G.B. Burlotto’s accomplishments were rivaled only by those of Biondi-Santi and Vega Sicilia. G.B. achieved superstardom in a world dominated by French wines, with his authentic Piemontese reds wines grown in northern Italy. Today, Burlotto has emerged as one of Piemonte’s great small producers, thanks to the brilliant and highly traditional winemaking of G.B.’s great-great-grandson, Fabio Alessandria.
