Burlotto 2007 Barolo Monvigliero (Slighty torn label)
Amazing finesse for 2007, especially given the uncompromising vinification (see our note for Monvigliero 2006). A wine for the cellar, nonetheless this has a lovely open quality, especially on the palate where it tastes very clean with good freshness and vivacity, along with a lot of depth. Plenty of ripe tannin; cocoa, tea, rose, chalk, truffle — an aristocratic wine, and one of the very best of the 2007s tasted. Gold Medal! JW
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.
