Winemaker's Notes

This wine is a vivid and intense ruby red in color with a grapey and fruity (plum and cherry) aroma. Grapes grown on light and loose-textured soils and modern oenological techniques which enable producers to obtain and conserve fruit and freshness combine to make this a wine which is very pleasurable in its youth. For this reason it goes well with simple dishes such as hors d'oeuvres, soups, risotto, and pasta.

Critical Acclaim

"This is pure, with blackberry and black cherry flavors that run deep. Coats the palate lightly, with a glycerine feel, offset by bright acidity and a touch of tannins that add a pleasant astringency on the finish."
90 Points

"Prunotto's 2011 Barbera d'Asti Fiulot is another big, opulent wine bursting with fruit. The Fiulot isn't the last word in complexity, but it is a terrific wine for the money. There is plenty of intensity and opulence in the glass, along with the underlying nervousness of Asti to balance things out."

A really nice Barbera with just the right amount of acidity. Wonderful fruit both black and red berries. Nice mouth watering mineral component.

Not good. I think my bottle was bad. Not sure. It was bubbly and I did not expect that.
