Localization: Piedmont, Italy
Tasting Notes: A powerful wine, but not monolithic, deep without saturation. Its expressive energy is revealed in its nuances, the floral hints, the vibrations of juicy fruit, in the warmth it holds. His kingdom is not the tasting room, but the set table; with a horizon not limited to regional cuisine, but ranging in every direction.
Notes: Aves, produced only in in the top vintages, is a rigorous selection of grapes from the best and oldest vineyards. The harvest is carried out by hand, in order to preserve the integrity of the fruit. Aves undergoes malolactic fermentation and an additional 9 months of maturation in 500 liter wooden barrels followed by subsequent assembly and aging in large barrels.
Food Pairing: This is a profoundly food-friendly red wine with the acidity for cheese dishes, the lean structure for a plate of pasta and the sweet fruit tones to counter any savory flavor.
The Domain: The Burlotto winery is located near Verduno and was founded by the Commendatore Giovan Battista Burlotto in the second half of the 19th century; the wines produced became a reference point in the Langhe soon. This was also thanks to the farsightedness of Giovan Battista, who began to sell wines in bottle in a period in which the wine was sold exclusively in demijohns or kegs. The current owner today is Marina Burlotto, which has 12 hectares of vineyards located in the area of Verduno, Barolo and Roddi, from which obtains an average production of 60,000 bottles.
