Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Garnet red in color, of good tonal intensity, complex in aroma with notes of red fruit and spices, full and velvety on the palate with a long finish and aftertaste. Its structured and full-bodied character make it an excellent match for meat dishes and for cheese. Serve at a temperature of 17° centigrade (62° Fahrenheit)

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Barbaresco blossoms on the palate with dried herbs, tobacco, crushed flowers and sweet red berries. The aromas and flavors are those of a warm vintage, yet there is considerable structure underpinning the fruit. Although likely to be a relatively fast-maturing wine, the 2009 should probably be cellared for another year or two to allow the tannins to soften. This is quite impressive for an entry-level Barbaresco. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021. This is a terrific set of new releases from Prunotto. In particular, this year I was impressed with the quality and consistency of the entry-level offerings. "

"Aromas of peaches, plums and strawberries with hints of flowers. Medium to full body, with hints of cocoa, berry and orange. It builds on the finish. Very subtle and intriguing wine. Drink or hold."
91 Points

"Charming and accessible, this smooth red evokes cherry, herb and underbrush aromas and flavors. Tightens up on the finish, where the muscular tannins take over. Shows good balance overall. Best from 2015 through 2025."
90 Points

"This opens with aromas of sweet marzipan and bright forest berry, with subtle tones of ginger, cola and chopped herb filling in the background. It is tight and firmly astringent; drink after 2018."
90 Points

"Pale amber-red color. Pretty aromas of dried flowers and menthol. Quite closed at present, showing moderately deep juicy red fruit and mint flavors and modest flesh. Finishes with firm, dusty tannins. This very young Barbaresco gained weight with aeration. I'd wait a year or two before pulling the cork."

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
