TN: 2012 Comm. G.B. Burlotto Barolo Acclivi

  • 2012 Comm. G.B. Burlotto Barolo Acclivi - Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barolo (7/30/2016)
    (magnum) A story about the greatness that is Burlotto, and the greatness of the Langhe and of the Nebbiolo grape, all in one book. But to power read this book, would be to miss the point. Let me explain. I opened this on Friday morning, left in decanter for 10 hours before returning to bottle and serving the following day at 2pm. Yes, the wine was nice, it showed well, as expected, but it didn’t wow me, and it wasn’t overly memorable. But, by the final chapter, some 5 days later, the last 1/3 of the bottle (stored at room temp, mind you) was just out of this world good. Such elegance, with depth and beauty to spare. I was not worthy then, and can’t say I am now. Bravo to all on the Burlotto team, this was such a memorable experience. Thru 2035; no problem, I should think. highly recommended

Grazie mille, Fabio!
