G. B. Burlotto Barolo 'Acclivi', Barolo DOCG, Italy 2019

Grape variety: Nebbiolo
Acclivi is a liquid postcard from Verduno, the fruit of its historic vineyards, of their steep slopes, dusted with pale earth. The locale transmits stretches of calm, a natural gracefulness, the airy splendor; it distills all this into a Barolo that is as pure as a crystal, infused with a current of luminous energy.
Verduno is the northernmost municipality of the Barolo area with soils that were formed between the Tortonian and the Messinian geological eras. Within short distances in the vineyards you can find land attributable to different geological formations, even if the prevailing ones are the laminated fossil Marls of Sant’Agata (Monvigliero) and the Cassano Spinola Formation (Neirane, Boscatto and part of Rocche Olmo). These are calcareous soils with a balanced presence of clay, sand and silt that allows for good water retention.

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.
