Antinori, Prunotto Mompertone

£16.99
Quantity:

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.

Tasting Notes

A delicious modern interpretation of Piedmont, offering aromas of plum, cherry, freshly-roasted coffee and peppery spice. Plump and ripe in the mouth, yet retaining admirable focus and finesse.

The grapes come from the single Mompertone vineyard in Calliano, in the province of Asti.
