About This Wine...
This wine is produced 100% with Nebbiolo grapes from the area defined by the specifications regarding wine production for that zone. It is aged for one year in 50-Hl French oak barrels and partly in 2nd and 3rd passage barriques. The wine is bottle aged for approximately one year. It is aristocratic but accessible and charming. While young, it is rich in elegant fruity fragrances; when mature, it is ethereal with the scent of violets, withered roses, and brushwood. On the palate it is harmonious and velvety.
In 1904 a cooperative Ai Vini delle Langhi was set up by wine growers of the area; this was subsequently taken over and renamed by Alfredo Prunotto in 1923. After another change of ownership, Antinori acquired the estate and have maintained the excellent level of quality sought by Alfredo Prunotto. Prunotto were the first winery to establish the Cru’s concept and is one of the top five estates in Piedmont.
