Producer

Alfredo Prunotto founded his business in 1922, and was one of Piemonte’s most dynamic exporters until his retirement in 1956. The company passed then to Prunotto’s friend Beppe Colla, now a revered winemaker and one of the founding fathers of modern Piemonte. The quality of the top wines goes without saying, but the rest of the range is made with equal aplomb. The style is modern without being exaggerated: freshness of aroma and approachability of structure are viewed as positives, but copious new oak is not. Indeed, the only wines that see the inside of a brand new barrique are the outstanding single vineyard Barberas.

Vineyard

This Dolcetto is grown on sandy clay soils in the Barbaresco, Treiso, Alba and Monforte districts. The soil is a mixture of sand and clay.

Winery

Following destemming and pressing, fermentation took place at 27-28ºC with a seven-day maceration. The wine was bottled unoaked in the spring following the vintage.
