Estate: Dating back to 1500, there is an incredible amount of history and happenings throughout the estate’s many years. The castle has been home to famous families, renowned architects, oenologists, generals and even a king. In 1909 the Burlotto family purchased the estate. In 1953 legendary Barolo winemaker Giovanni Battista Burlotto, restored and revitalized the castle, vines and cellar. A portion of the castle was made into a hotel with a restaurant, with the vision to create a meeting point for food and wine. His 3 daughters carried his tradition on, and today it is their 3 daughters [Elisabetta, Alessandra and Giovana], along with their respective families, continue the winemaking traditions and hospitality created by their grandfather.
Winemaking: Grapes are from organically farmed estate vineyards planted in 1978, in the commune of Barbaresco, at 255 meters in elevation with limestone and clay white soils. “Fermented in stainless steel for about 12 days with periodic punching down of the cap. Aged for six months in Slavonian botti grandi followed by three months in steel and then three months in the bottle.”
Tasting Notes: Ruby red in colour with aromas of strawberry, black cherry, licorice, white pepper and wildflowers. Cherry, wild strawberry, red currant, earth and black pepper are framed by firm tannins and fresh acidity. Licorice and red fruit linger between each silky, lithe sip.
