About This Wine...
A historic cru specially selected and produced for the first time by Prunotto in 1961. 100% Nebbiolo grapes from the community of Bussia Soprano in Monforte d’Alba. It is left in French oak barrels for 24 months, partly in 50 hl barrels and partly in barriques used for the 2nd and 3rd time, which gives it maturity and balance. It is bottle-aged for one year before being
released from the wine cellars. Endowed with a ruby red color, its aroma is very intense and persistent, with an outstanding personality. It is dry on the palate, full, and well-balanced.
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.
