TASTING NOTES 
Mompertone is a deep ruby red color with violet highlights. The nose is rich in aromas of plums and cherries that blend with notes of violets, spices and coffee. The palate is mouth filling rich in tannins that are elegant, supple and persistent.

PRODUCER
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.

CLIMATE
The 2015 vintage started out with a cold, wet winter with abundant snowfall that created excellent water reserves in the soil. Mild springtime temperatures prompted early vine growth that continued throughout the season. Climatic conditions in summer were very dry with high temperatures well above average until the end of August. These hot, dry conditions did not endanger grape ripening due to plentiful water reserves in the vineyards. Harvesting of Barbera and Syrah grapes for Mompertone took place between September 7th and 29th.

VINEYARD
Mompertone comes from vineyards in the Monferrato area that grow on soils composed of limestone and clay with widespread sand veining. This terroir gives the wine a round palate characterized by soft and elegant tannins.

WINERY
Immediately upon arrival in the cellar, the grapes were destemmed and crushed. Maceration on the skins lasted for a period of 7 days at a temperature of 28-30 °C (82-86 °F). Malolactic fermentation was completed at the end of December. The wine was aged for approximately 12 months.
The Barbera fermented over nine days at 28-30°C, while the Syrah fermented over ten days at up to 31°C. Following malolactic, the two components were blended and aged for ten months, forty percent in large oak botti, and sixty percent in French oak barriques.
