G.B. Burlotto

Verduno, Piedmont • Italy

The historic G.B. Burlotto estate, located in Verduno, has been actively producing wine since the mid 1800s, when it was the official supplier of the House of Savoy, the rulers of the Piedmont. Upon founder Giovan Battista’s death in 1927, the estate lost much of its creative head and recognition for a good part of the 19th century.

Only recently has G.B.’s grandson, Fabio Alessandria, brought the estate back to the forefront of the prestige wine world. Reminiscent of the historic winemaking process, all the grapes are pressed by foot treading, avoiding myriad disadvantages of more modern methods. The foot treading avoids breaking the seeds, reducing bitterness and adding to the delicate but complex nature of the wines. While the Monvigliero is the crown jewel of the estate, the Langhe Nebbiolo provides a wonderful entry level to the Burlotto portfolio. Through and through, the estate has recaptured its former glory and stands as one of the true giants of the region.
