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
A single-site wine from the Occhetti vineyard, situated 250 metres above sea level in Monteu Roero. The soil is sandy, with gravel and some calcareous clay; the exposure is south/south-west.

WINERY
The grapes were crushed and destemmed, then fermented at a maximum of 29oC with a ten-day maceration. The wine was aged in a mixture of seventy-hectolitre and 300-litre oak barrels, with no new oak.
