    Burlotto Barolo "Castelletto" '19


    Burlotto Barolo "Castelletto" '19

    The hill of Castelletto is on the hilly ridge of Monforte, facing Serralunga d’Alba, in the southeastern part of the Barolo area. The soils are clayey marl, rich in limestone and minerals, alternating with slightly sandier areas.

    The grapes are hand harvested, and the bunches are destemmed. Fermentation takes place in French oak vats, with delicate pumping over and punching down carried out daily. Temperature control is used to avoid high temperatures. The wine is matured in French oak barrels for 20 to 33 months. The wine is usually bottled in the summer without fining or filtering, and rests in the cellar for at least 9 months before release.

    "This is a relatively new wine from Comm. G.B. Burlotto that brings us to the village of Monforte d'Alba. Now in its second release, the 2019 Barolo Castelletto is a wine that Fabio Alessandria had long wanted to make. In fact, he was specifically looking for land in this MGA site (located at 500 meters in elevation, with Perno to the north and Ginestra to the south). "I was looking in that valley because I wanted to make a wine with more backbone and tannic power," he says. Indeed, this wine presents a vertical personality that is straight-shooting, precise and direct. This beautiful 2019 vintage gives a true taste of his vision. This is a classic wine with hints of wild fruit, mint and chalky minerality over a lean-bodied mouthfeel. It is certainly a wine of energy, tension and lasting power. 98 Points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate"
