Style: Smooth & Supple

Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

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: 13.5%

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 with ample and complex aromas of violets and berry fruit, full and velvety in flavor and very balanced. Its structure and body make it an ideal match for meat and game dishes and for cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Barolo emerges from the glass with juicy dark berries, sweet spices, tobacco and incense, all in a medium-bodied style that is quite appealing. The 2008 shows the personality of the year in a fairly approachable style. The 2008 finishes with lovely vinous energy but ultimately it is a bit simple. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2020. 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"
91 Points

"This opens with bold intensity and delicate background tones of dried cassis, cola, licorice and cedar. It’s a dry but exceedingly delicate wine with a fine texture and polished tannins"
91 Points

"Pale red with an amber edge. Sour cherry, rose petal, camphor and spices on the nose. Vibrant and suave in the mouth, offering a restrained sweetness and good balancing acidity. Builds nicely on the back end, finishing with nobler tannins than the 2008 Barbaresco normale."

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...
