About This Wine...
Produced 100% from Nebbiolo grapes grown in the area defined by the specifications regarding wine production for that zone. The wine is aged partly in 50-Hl and 75-Hl French oak barrels and partly in 2nd and 3rd passage barriques for approximately 24 months, and is then bottle aged for another 12 months. It is an outstanding and very pleasant wine to drink: in its youth, it is rich in the fragrances of fruit and flowers and can be paired very well with many dishes, even those not traditionally paired with this wine. When the wine has matured, it acquires complex ethereal characteristics and is highlighted by a full bouquet with notes of brushwood, truffles, and tar, and naturally expresses itself best with great dishes.
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.
