Burlotto Barolo Monvigliero 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. From the sunny Monvigliero vineyard, this traditional Barolo (they still crush grapes using their feet) ripens early. 2017 has been called as good or better than the mythic 2010 vintage. Just wish we had more to sell.
