Prunotto Barolo DOCG
Prunotto Barolo DOCG
Extended bottle-aging and the use of oak barrels of various sizes produce a classic Barolo that is enjoyable when young, eminently age-worthy, and hauntingly complex. Prunotto Barolo is garnet-red in color with ample and complex aromas of violets and berry fruit. It is an ideal match for meat and game dishes and for cheese.
100% Nebbiolo
Prunotto Bussia Barolo DOCG
Prunotto Bussia Barolo DOCG
This single-vineyard Barolo has been made since 1961, making it the first Barolo cru. It is vinified at the newly-opened Prunotto winery in Bussia, using exclusively estate fruit from this famed cru located in the Monforte area of Barolo.
Sought by collectors and made for cellaring, this complex wine exhibits powerful flavors with supple and ample tannins and a long finish and aftertaste.

Inside Antinori:
Prunotto, in the Heart of Piedmont
Prunotto is located in Alba, Italy, between the towns of Barolo and Barbaresco. It was founded by Alfredo Prunotto in 1904 and acquired by the Antinori family almost 30 years ago. Today, Prunotto includes estate-owned vineyards in Piedmont's most important viticultural areas. In addition to acquiring the land, the Antinori family has improved the quality of the vineyards by meticulously tailoring rootstock and clones to the unique attributes of each plot of land.
Prunetto's hometown is also the source of the famous white truffles of Alba. For a few weeks in October and November, foragers and their specially-trained dogs search the area's hillsides for these treasured fungi.
