The so-called Market remains a thing of mystery (the Wine Market, that is; forget knowing anything about any other Market); somehow I think we cruise alongside, part of the Market but not really of it. Maybe it’s just wishful thinking, and in any case this isn’t a statement of superiority –but the quantities we get of most of what we sell are so small that our enthusiasms (or lack of enthusiasm for other wine) is hardly going to move the needle on any meter. For example, we have 24 bottles of Acclivi to sell, and not more than 60 of any other Burlotto wine. We’re told that The Market was crazy for 2010 Barolo, a vintage I also prefer, but one that was more austere and obviously structured than 2011, and which will need much more time in the cellar; the good 2011s, like this Barolo Acclivi, combine reasonable elegance and structure with ripeness and approachability. I found the Acclivi to be a classic wine, in a rich and suave mode. What’s not to like? Jamie Wolff
Obviously this is a very fine wine. Everyone says so. I think maybe I’m in the minority because I always prefer Monvigliero. Subtlety is lost on me. The Cannubi – I do like it, don’t get me wrong – shows much more vintage character. It’s 15.5 alcohol. It has a dense core, dark fruit character, and quite pronounce tannin. It’s a wine for the cellar, for the back corner of the cellar where you won’t touch it for a good 15 years. If you don’t ever touch the wine, some grandchild will end up being very happy to find it.

Another great, superb, over-the-top-good vintage for Monvigliero. As usual. And I’m prepared to dance, to steal from our friends and shout glorious, boldface adjectives of praise in all caps, to foam at the mouth, just to try to say: If you have admired this wine in the past, even a little, then you must have some of the 2011.
