G.B. Burlotto Pelaverga di Verduno 2018
The Pelaverga of the Burlotto winery is a very special red wine produced with 100% of Pelaverga grapes grown in the area of Verduno, a small village near Alba. With a nice ruby red color, it develops an intense and elegant bouquet, with hints of nutmeg and spices, black pepper and strawberry. Well balanced, dry and persistent in the mouth, this Pelaverga is great to taste with appetizers or pasta courses typical of the Piedmont cuisine, but is also perfect if drunk together with fresh or not seasoned cheeses.
The Burlotto winery is located near Verduno and was founded by the commendatore Giovan Battista Burlotto in the second half of the 19th century; the wines produced became a reference point in the Langhe soon. This was also thanks to the farsightedness of Giovan Battista, who began to sell wines in bottle in a period in which the wine was sold exclusively in demijohns or kegs. The current owner today is Marina Burlotto, which has 12 hectares of vineyards located in the area of Verduno, Barolo and Roddi, from which obtains an average production of 60,000 bottles.
