Burlotto – The Palm Tree King (and winemaker of course)
Not only does Burlotto grow palm trees, he also makes excellent wines! In a beautiful house in Verduno, you will find a winemaker of the ages (and his 2 beautiful dogs). I am known for my love of La Morra but I will happily visit Fabio in Verduno any day!
Fabio makes various wines, including a few varieties beyond the barbera and nebbiolo. In the lineup you will find a Sauvignon Blanc, Pelaverga and Freisa. He also makes a barbera “superiore” – the Aves. An impressive libabry, full of passion and high quality.
You may also know that he received 100 points from Antonio Galloni for his Monvigliero 2013 – very impressive stuff. I have always thought his wines were top quality but the 100 points must be nice regardless. If you know me, then you know that I care more about the people than I do about points on a scale, but I am very happy for him as it’s quite an honor to receive 100 points from Galloni.
