About Prunotto 2016 Barolo

Half a century ago celebrated Piemontese producer Alfredo Prunotto imposed new standards on the production of Barolo, elevating the overall level of quality in the wine. His was the first winery to individually select grapes from the finest vineyards and to designate the name of the vineyard (cru) as a symbol of the quality and specific characteristics of the wine. In 1989 when the Antinori group purchased the winery they made smart investments, acquiring plots in prominent vineyards in the most exclusive areas including the Bussia vineyard in Barolo and the Bric Turot vineyard in Barbaresco. The result is a continuation of the the quality improvements started long ago by Prunotto and evidenced by this 2013 Barolo.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 93 points saying "Fragrant and refined, this focused red opens with alluring scents of iris, woodland berry, botanical herb and pipe tobacco. It’s vibrant and linear, featuring strawberry compote, raspberry and star anise framed in bright acidity and taut, polished tannins. Drink 2022–2028."

Vinous scored this 91 points saying "The 2016 Barolo is a terrific choice for near and medium-term drinking. Sweet red berry fruit, mint, spice, cedar and pipe tobacco all grace this airy, finessed Barolo. The 2016 can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring, although a bit of time in bottle will help soften the tannins a touch. This is very nicely done."
