Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby red in color with purple hues, the 2010 Mompertone shows rich fruity aromas of plum and cherry with notes of violet, coffee, and spice. The palate is supple and dense with soft tannins and a long elegant finish.

Blend: 60% Barbera, 40% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

V 91
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

The 2010 Monferrato Mompertone (Barbera, Syrah) is endowed with serious minerality and intensity. Sweet red berries, flowers, spices and anise are some of the many nuances that take shape in the glass. Most previous versions have been much more open upon release, but not the 2010. Readers who want to get a sense of the personality of the vintage will glean many insights from tasting this focused, vibrant red. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.

Alfredo Prunotto, , Italy
Prunotto
Following World War II, Alfredo Prunotto and his wife took over and restored an old cooperative winery called "Vini delle Langhe", establishing a new era under the Prunotto name. Prunotto imposed new standards on production, elevating the level of quality and succeeding in exporting his wines to several countries. Prunotto was the first winery to individually select grapes from the finest vineyards and to designate the name of the vineyard (cru) as a symbol of the quality and specific characteristics of the wine.

The Antinori group purchased the winery in 1989 and made great investments towards improvements. The strategic vision brought by Antinori is well represented by the acquisition of prominent vineyards in the most exclusive areas: the Bussia vineyard, acquired in 1990, and the Bric Turot vineyard, bought in 1997, to name two.

Prunotto's desire to control every detail in all phases of production, starting from the vine and ending in the glass has become a distinctive feature of their high quality. The balance between tradition and innovation continues to be a distinctive feature of Prunotto wines. The meticulous care for each bottle is the result of a century of experience, great passion for wine and love for the land of Piedmont. These characteristics made Prunotto a leader in the production of Alba's finest wines.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
