Tasting Notes: It draws its fruit from various sites in Verduno. This is a soft and pliant expression that produces a long and fine succession of wild cherry, blue flower, crushed stone and anise-like aromas. You might also notice some rusty iron or candied apricot. This is a solid Barolo (with 10,000 bottles released) that vaunts a classic and traditional personality despite the hot vintage.

The Domain: Our winery carries the name of its founder, Giovan Battista Burlotto, and despite being housed in an 18th-century building, it was founded in 1850 with a specific homeland: Verduno, a historic village for the production of Barolo. On the facade of the winery one finds 32 medals with symbols and dates which document the winery's pioneering production and commercial activities, as well as the notoriety in Italy of its wine during the 19th and 20th centuries.

The date of 1850, present in numerous documents that we still preserve today, does not denote the start of our agricultural enterprise but represents the moment in which a pre-existing family business, dedicated to diversified farming activities, was reoriented with conviction towards viticulture, which at the time was far from as widespread as it is today, but remained the realm of a small handful of people, with a pioneering and often visionary spirit.

The production on which the then Cavalier “GiBi” Burlotto (later named Commendatore, with consequent updating of the company name) focused upon was that of the typical wines of Langa, which he produced with grapes from vineyards which he already owned; vineyards of great pedigree, such as Monvigliero in Verduno and Cannubi in Barolo.
The recognition as official supplier of the Royal House of Savoy,, and the bounty of awards won in the fairs and exhibitions on both sides of the Atlantic, came to affirm the formidable success of the endeavor, built through hard work, exactitude, ,savoir-faire and respect, but also the resultant great wines, universally appreciated.
