This is the first vintage of La Serra by Burzi!

It’s unusual to find young Barolo drinking generously, and even harder to find it at a moderate price point. Located in La Morra, Alberto and Caterina's parents and grandparents have been growing Nebbiolo on their family land for almost 100 years. Still, they decided to finally take the plunge into winemaking. The energetic siblings are farming organically in the vineyards surrounding their home in the village of Santa Maria, and since their first vintage in 2012 have been creating small, standout productions. 

Winemaker: Alberto and Caterina Burzi 

Farming: Organic

Grape variety: 100% Nebbiolo Lampia.

Terroir: the grapes come from a La Serra, a single vineyard in the area of La Morra, with vine age from 30 to over 80 years. 

Vinification: during the fermentation a constant work of pumping over is manually carried out; the maceration can last between 30 and 60 days according to the vintage and it is carried out in stainless steel (under a controlled temperature) with the technique of “submerged cap”. This technique consists in the closure of the superior part of a tank with oak boards placed in a parallel manner. Then, the steel tank is filled leaving the skins (“the cap”) submerged in the wine: this allows a very elegant passage of the noble substances contained in the skins.

Aging: The malolactic fermentation and the aging are made in Austrian oak barrels of 30 HL not roasted to preserve perfumes and qualities typical of the native earth.

Scores - 94pts Vinous: A new wine in this range, the 2019 Barolo La Serra presents terrific balance of fruit and tannin, always the greatest challenge in this vineyard.  Bright, red-toned fruit, blood orange, mint, spice and crushed flowers lend energy to the beautifully delineated Barolo. Sweet floral and citrus overtones lift the sculpted finish.  94 points
