More info

Grapes for this Barolo come from vineyards in the areas of Monforte, Serralunga and Castiglione Falletto. Soils are rich in chalky clay with traces of magnesium and manganese.

The grapes were destemmed, crushed, and fermented for ten days at up to 30ºC. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for eighteen months in large French oak casks.

Alfredo Prunotto founded his business in 1922, and was one of Piemonte’s most dynamic exporters until his retirement in 1956. The company passed then to Prunotto’s friend Beppe Colla, now a revered winemaker and one of the founding fathers of modern Piemonte. The quality of the top wines goes without saying, but the rest of the range is made with equal aplomb. The style is modern without being exaggerated: freshness of aroma and approachability of structure are viewed as positives, but copious new oak is not. Indeed, the only wines that see the inside of a brand new barrique are the outstanding single vineyard Barberas.
