Notes from the producer:
"Finally, the two most unique Burlotto wines are the beautiful red Pelaverga—from an ancient variety grown by the family since 1800—and the rare, explosively varietal Nebbiolo rosé, Elatis. Like everything else bearing the Burlotto name, they are the essence of a noble winemaking tradition."
The hidden face of the great Langa grape, overshadowed by the overwhelming force of the classics, born already armed for a renunciation of youth in the name of triumphant self assurance. Here is, instead, the youth of Nebbiolo, unexpected, brilliant and memorable: it does not have the weight of the great wines, but it brings as a gift its precious, intimate clarity. Our winery owns several small vineyards in the municipalities of Verduno. The calcareous soils, well balanced by the presence of clay, silt and sand, are geologically attributable in part to the laminated fossil Marls of Sant’Agata as well as to soils of the Cassano Spinola Formation. Altitudes range between 270 and 350 meters above sea level. Guyot training system of vines."
