G.B. Burlotto 2020

G.B. Burlotto 2020

“Fabio Alessandria has spent much of his life at Burlotto…, he has taken his family’s wines into the stratosphere, in what is really a pretty short period of time.” Antonio Galloni

Burlotto is probably the most demanded producer at the moment, and the most difficult to get, bordering on impossible.

These wines are extremely rare, the largest production of any of the Cru does not exceed 1,500 cases of six bottles for the world!

“My visit at Burlotto was one of the highlights of the time I spent in Barolo this fall. As has been the case in recent years, so many wines in the range are compelling. In 2020, the Barolo harvest started on October 5 with Monvigliero, followed by Cannubi and then Castelletto. The last pick was on the 12th for some smaller parcels. In 2020, Fabio Alessandria did not bottle his Barolo Acclivi because of damage from hail. Alessandria bottled his 2020 Barolos ten months earlier than the norm, with the exception of the Barolo Monvigliero because it saw a longer, submerged cap maceration. The choice to bottle much earlier than many other producers was largely driven by the style of the year, but also practical considerations, including a desire to always have casks full and Alessandria’s general disdain for leaving the wines in tank.”

Antonio Galloni

The 2020 Barolo Monvigliero is a gorgeous, classically austere Barolo that is going to need time to soften. Dried herbs, flowers, mint, dried cherry and white pepper infuse the 2020 with tons of aromatic nuance. Readers will have to be patient, as the aromatics are tempting, but the acids and tannins are those of a very young, cutting Barolo. [Antonio Galloni, 04/01/2024]

Showing fine and delicate perfumes, the Comm. G.B. Burlotto 2020 Barolo Monvigliero (made with whole-cluster fermentation) opens to a hint of something exotic like Moroccan spice with candied orange, Arabian jasmine or tamarind chutney. This vintage is a little more immediate in character, with a long mid-palate that culminates with a chalky tannic finish. The Monvigliero is very elegant, even fragile, with an upward fruit crescendo. Production in this vintage is 9,000 bottles. [Monica Larner, 04/04/2024]

The Comm. G.B. Burlotto 2020 Barolo has delicate floral aromas with almond blossom and red fruits. To the palate, the wine shows a very tight and compact texture, tonic and polished, with lingering lavender bud, some grilled herb, sour cherry, tart flavors, glossy tannins and nice acidity. This is one for the purists. Production is 11,000 bottles. [Monica Larner, 04/04/2024]

2020 Barolo Monvigliero -
Showing fine and delicate perfumes, the Comm. G.B. Burlotto 2020 Barolo Monvigliero (made with whole-cluster fermentation) opens to a hint of something exotic like Moroccan spice with candied orange, Arabian jasmine or tamarind chutney. This vintage is a little more immediate in character, with a long mid-palate that culminates with a chalky tannic finish. The Monvigliero is very elegant, even fragile, with an upward fruit crescendo. Production in this vintage is 9,000 bottles. Drink 2026-2050. 97 Points


2020 Barolo Castelletto -
The Comm. G.B. Burlotto 2020 Barolo Castelletto is a driven wine that sails across the senses with inner power and grit. There are bright, clean berry aromas with tart cassis, more red flower rather than blue flower (maybe geranium or heritage rose), with iron ore or ferrous mineral at the back. The bouquet is compact and tight, requiring more time to unfold. The structured mouthfeel reveals a spicy hint of white pepper. Castelletto remains an angular and powerful wine to hold in your cellar for now. Only 3,000 bottles were made. Drink 2026-2050. 96 Points [Monica Larner, 04/04/2024]

Antonio Galloni

The 2020 Barolo Cannubi is the most expressive of the Burlotto Barolos today. Relative to the Monvigliero especially, it benefits from having spent ten more months in bottle. The 2020 shows the lighter style of the year, but has gorgeous textural depth to fill out its layers. Plush tannins wrap around a core of black cherry, plum, cloves, new leather and licorice. The Cannubi is a standout. [Antonio Galloni, 04/01/2024]

Robert Parker

The 2020 Barolo Cannubi is very fine and delicate with light rose, peony and floral aromas that dovetail into tart fruit, small currants and underripe cherry. This lean-bodied Barolo is all about grace, detail and pinpoint aromas that cede to smooth ripeness and fine texture. The Cannubi offers an almost weightless style with integrated oak, cedar, camphor ash and crushed stone. Some 4,000 bottles of this quintessentially pretty wine were made.
