Commendatore G.B. Burlotto, Barolo, Monvigliero, 2013

1 x 0.750L
into neck
97 / 100 Robert Parker
The 2013 Barolo Monvigliero is indeed a special wine that excels in terms of elegance and ethereal momentum. It's impossible to ignore its charm and seductive powers. This wine was released one year ago, but the folks at Comm. G.B. Burlotto preferred not to send samples for review at that time. I was able to taste this beautiful wine during my visit to the estate this year. This vintage of Monvigliero glides smooth and high over the senses, imparting fine notes of cassis, wild berry and anise seed. There is a lasting note of white truffle with tangy ginger and rhubarb. The wine offers volume and largess in the mouth with substantial textural fiber. The bright acidity adds energy and zest to the finish. This wine dances with the grace and muscle of a centerstage ballerina. Comm. G.B. Burlotto did not produce the Barolo Acclivi in 2014. Yields were down 30% across the estate's vineyard holding in 2014. It was determined that there was not enough quality fruit to make all the top-shelf wines in this vintage. But the Barolo Monvigliero was produced, and I have included reviews of the two latest vintages here, both the excellent 2013 and the latest release 2014.
