About Our Ratings

Nebbiolo d’Alba 2010 Occhetti, Prunotto
Half a century ago Alfredo Prunotto’s was the first winery to individually select grapes from the finest vineyards and to designate the name of the vineyard (cru) on the wine label to point out the quality and specific characteristics of these vineyards. Today “Cru” wines are still an important focus for Prunotto and this is one of them. The Occhetti vineyard is about 825 feet above sea level with a south-southwestern exposure and sandy soils stratified with layers of gravel and of clayey sands. The Nebbiolo grown there has a unique quality. The grapes are pressed and maceration extends for 10 days. The wine is aged partly in 60 gallon oak barrels used twice previously. From the exceptional 2010 vintage, It shows elegant rose, red berry fruit and licorice character with full body, excellent balance, a lush mouthfeel and a long finish.

Not what I expected.
A very nice wine that went very well with our steaks, but not like a Barbaresco or Barolo, the nebbiolos we often drink. It does have fine fragrance and good balance, but for me it was not at all full-bodied, and not what I would call lush. It was very pleasant, but far lighter in color and texture than I expected.
