    Winemaker Notes

    Vivid ruby red in color with intense fruity aromas and flavors. The wine is well-balanced and fresh and a good example of a modern-styled Barbera. It is complete, harmonious and easy to appreciate, even in its youth. This wine pairs well with simple dishes such as hors d'oeuvres, soups, risotto, and pasta.

    Prunotto Winery Image

    The winery is named for Alfredo Prunotto who bought a struggling Piedmont cooperative winery in 1923 and made it his own. Under his leadership, Prunotto wines established an excellent reputation for quality and were among the very first in Piedmont to be exported abroad. Although Alfredo sold the winery upon his retirement in 1956, his legacy continues today with the Antinori family. The Antinoris have moved the winery forward by investing in vineyards, equipment, and varietal analysis, carrying on Alfredo’s legacy and making Prunotto the success that it is today.

    Recognized as the source of the best Barbera in all of Italy, Asti is a province (as well as major city) in Piedmont, consisting of a gentle, rolling landscape with vineyards, farmland and forests alternating throughout.

    Barbera d’Asti can be made in an array of styles from relatively straightforward, fruity and ready for consumption early, to the more concentrated, oak aged version with an ability to cellar impressively for 10-15 years and beyond. Some of the very best sites for Barbera in Asti are concentrated in the subzone of Nizza Monferrato. Other red varieties grown here include Freisa, Grignolino and Dolcetto, which can be bottled varietally or blended into Barbera.

    Historically consumers commonly associated the Asti region with Asti Spumante and Moscato d’Asti, both playful, aromatic, sparkling wines made from the Muscat grape. Asti Spumante is less sweet, fully fizzy and more alcoholic (yet still clocking in at only around 9% alcohol) while Moscato d’Asti is sweeter, gently sparkling (“frizzante”) and closer to 5 or 6% alcohol. Each is produced in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fresh and fruity flavors of the grape, often including peach, apricot, lychee and rose petal. Asti is also the spot for the pink-hued Brachetto d'Acqui, a slightly sparkling wine ready to charm with its raspberry and rose flavors and aromas.

    Friendly and approachable, Barbera produces wines in a wide range of styles, from youthful, fresh and fruity to serious, structured and age-worthy. Piedmont is the most famous source of Barbera; those from Asti and Alba garner the most praise. Barbera actually can adapt to many climates and enjoys success in some New World regions. Somm Secret—In the past it wasn’t common or even accepted to age Barbera in oak but today both styles—oaked and unoaked—abound and in fact most Piedmontese producers today produce both styles.
