Burlotto + Cordero di Montezemolo

If you were buying wine from the 1960s – 1980s, primarily direct from the producer, and you had plenty of good cellar space, and enough money to spend – well – why not buy 5 cases of a wine you loved, or maybe 10 cases? This explains our good luck, shown below. We have tasted both wines several times over the last 10 years and I jump at any chance to buy them again. The Burlotto is alive, elegant, somewhat austere, but still fresh, and given time to breathe it really fills out. The Cordero 1971 – also from an excellent vintage – is fuller and rounder, as you might expect from a warm spot in La Morra. But it’s also a wine of finesse, with plenty of classic aromatics, fine tannins, and great persistence. Two beauties! Jamie Wolff

Cordero di Montezemolo 1971 Barolo Monfalletto

A consistently excellent wine — we've been lucky to get to taste this several times in the last few years. It needs a lot of time to breathe, and then it provides a classic example of fully mature Nebbiolo. Jamie Wolff
