  • 2016 Comm. G.B. Burlotto Barolo Monvigliero - Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barolo (7/19/2020)
    An ethereal and engaging nose of rose petal, raspberry, cherry and exotic spice. It has exquisite balance and such delicacy, yet bristles with energy and possess such latent power. Tannins simply occupy a space and each sip unlocks another subtle nuance. It is weightless and supremely long. Brilliant wine!

Thanks for note Jeremy.

I just received small parcel of village bottling in 375s. I hope my training-wheels version shows at least half as well as your glorious impression!

Are unicorns marsupials? Seems you have a fair share down under .

I love Burlotto's wines …
Fabio Alessandria keeps the stems for Monvigliero which somehow ressembles Rayas …

Note that the Castello di Verduno Monvigliero is worth tasting ...

Almost impossible to find here in the US now. Looks like pricing will be above $250 for the 16's. I saw in the HDH thread that the 15 was sold well over retail at auction. I just picked up the 15 at a reasonable price based compared to Wine Searcher average. I'm wondering what folks have been able to find on the 16 ?

cheers
Fred

I was only able to nab one at retail alas. I do love Burlotto wines up and down the spectrum.

The Burlotto Barolo Monvigliero 2016 is almost impossible to find; the Burlotto Barolo Cannubi 2016 is even harder to find.
