Burlotto Barolo Acclivi DOCG 2017
Yes, this is the one about which there's all the recent fuss. We've been carrying them for 10 years. One of the founding fathers of Barolo, Burlotto supplied wine to Italy's royal household and to the Duke of Abruzzi's 1899 expedition to the North Pole. Acclivi is a liquid postcard from Verduno, the fruit of its historic vineyards, of their steep slopes, dusted with pale earth. The locale transmits stretches of calm, a natural gracefulness, the airy splendor; it distills all this into a Barolo that is as pure as a crystal, infused with a current of luminous energy.
