TASTE
A delicious modern interpretation of Piedmont, offering aromas of plum, cherry, freshly-roasted coffee and peppery spice. Plump and ripe in the mouth, yet retaining admirable focus and finesse.

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.

VINEYARD
The grapes come from the single Mompertone vineyard in Calliano, in the province of Asti. The soil is clay with widespread veins of sand.

WINERY
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.
