Luigi Giordano Barbaresco Question

It might be a 2020 vintage characteristic? Maybe the warmth of that year made the wines softer and less varietally typical than normal?

The more burgundy I try the more similarities in certain aspects of the two varieties I notice. I came from Nebbiolo (my starting point) before some “lighter” burgundy exploring, and quite some wines have struck me as more Nebbiolo like than I would have expected.

And isn’t one of the reasons that Burlotto’s Monvigliero is so popular that it’s quite Burgundian?

Both varieties have a wide spectra of expressions that depending on vintage, location, vines, etc. Don’t think it’s too wild to feel that some are close to the other variety in character and taste profile.

Someone posted above about the Nebbiolo.
