G.B. Burlotto - Barolo Acclivi 2018


Marina, with her husband Giuseppe Alessandria, and their children Fabio and Cristina, represent the fourth and fifth generations at the helm of G.B. Burlotto. They continue today to produce the classic wines of the Alba Langa in the wake of a tradition.

Barolo Acclivi is our best representation of the full potential of the entire territory of Verduno. Produced only in years in which the quality allows, from a rigorous selection of grapes from our best and oldest vineyards located in Verduno (Monvigliero, Neirane, Rocche dell’Olmo and Boscatto). The choice of vines and the final blend varies in relation to the characteristics of the vintage. Our vines are trained in the Guyot style.

"Rose, new leather, tilled earth and red forest berry aromas emerge from the glass on this fragrant, lovely red. Elegantly structured, the focused, savory palate features cinnamon, star anise and crushed mint that accent a core of juicy red cherry and crushed strawberry. Taut, refined tannins and bright acidity provide great balance and tension. It's already drinking beautifully and will evolve for years. Drink 2023–2033." - 96 Points, Wine Enthusiast

"Acclivi is an assemblage from Verduno (Rocche Olmo, Neirane and Monvigliero) between 300 and 370 metres above sea level. The fresher style of the wine is underlined by cinnamon and peachy aromas with pomegranate fruit and a floral bouquet in depth. The interpretation exhibits an easier-drinking palate with elegant if dusty tannins and crisp acidity, balanced by good concentration for the vintage." - 94 Points, Decanter

"The 2018 Barolo Acclivi is savory in character with crushed stone, dark herb and blackcurrant. This wine represents a blend of fruit from Verduno, including old vines in Monvigliero, Neirane, Bocato and Rocche dell’Olmo. There is a special softness and silkiness to the Acclivi that we see in this vintage just as we have seen it in past editions." - 95 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
