Description

Prunotto’s Barolo is an intense garnet red color. An elegant and generous nose offers delicate spicy notes together with aromas of flowers and small red fruit. The palate is intense and well balanced with soft, silky tannins. The finish is rich and persistent.

Despite several snow events and very limited rainfall, winter 2019 saw temperatures that were higher than seasonal averages prompting early vine growth
especially in those vineyards with the most favorable sunlight exposure. The month of April until the end of May brought cold temperatures and rain showers
that affected flowering, reducing the number of berries per cluster resulting in lower yields. June delivered a hot, dry weather which was followed by rain during the last half of July. Optimal day/night temperature swings in August and frequent cluster
thinning in the vineyards preserved whole, healthy fruit. September began with a period of brief yet intense rainstorms that gave way to higher temperatures and clear sunny skies until mid- October. This wasn’t an easy vintage, with an extended harvest window and limited yields however, the grapes were of impeccable quality

Wines of Piedmont

In the North-Western corner of Italy, with a backdrop of the visually stunning Alps, Piedmont is a great place to visit for wine tourism. It is also home to some of the most sought-after wines in the country.

Nebbiolo is the region’s most prestigious grape variety, a red variety not seen much in Australia. Wines made from this grape are powerful with remarkably high levels of tannins but a balancing acidity. The Piedmont region offers the grapes with a reliable autumn fog that provides a cooling effect which is particularly beneficial to the growth of Nebbiolo. This pre-harvest fog (“nebbia” in Italian) is actually where the grape’s name comes from. The fog is vital in that it prolongs the time spent on the vine and allows the grapes to achieve full ripeness.

The most famous examples of Nebbiolo come from the appellations (subregions) of Barolo and Barbaresco, known for their ability to age well, firm tannins and distinct smell of tar and roses. Barolo is a big tannic expression of Nebbiolo, while Barbaresco only about 15km away makes a more elegant style. Barolo wines are generally the more expensive of the two and are known to cellar for decades.

By volume however, Barbera is the most planted red grape in Piedmont. This grape makes a juicy, low tannin but high acidity easy-going red. Perhaps somewhat like a lighter style Shiraz.

While there are quite a few white varieties planted in the region, the most notable is Moscato d’Asti, made in a sparkling style in the Asti subregion.
