Classification

Barolo D.O.C.G.

Grapes

Nebbiolo 100%

Origin & Soil

the Bussia vineyard in the township of Monforte, 350 meters (1200 feet) above sea level with a southern exposure. Soils from the Tortonian period (Sant’Agatha fossil marls, compact calcareous clays alternating with sandy strata)

Taste

an intense garnet red in color with ruby highlights and with aromas of very ripe berry and cherry fruit combined with floral and spicy notes. Powerful flavors with supple and ample tannins and a long finish and aftertaste. Its full body and significant structure make it an ideal match for meat, game, and cheese. Serve at a temperature 0f 17° centigrade (62.6° Fahrenheit)

Climate Vintage

the 2011 vintage will long be remembered as a completely atypical one for the extreme swings from one type of climate to another during the various phases of the growing season which characterized it. Normal winter weather was followed by high temperatures in April, which led to an early – two week – start in the growth and development of the vegetation. In the months which followed the climate swung from periods of elevated temperatures to others which were less warm. During the month of August temperatures were above 30° centigrade (86° Fahrenheit) and this warmth, with the assistance of the ample reserves of water in the soil, helped maintain the anticipation of the various phases of the ripening cycle already noted. The harvest, consequently, began twelve days earlier than the usual seasonal averages. The red grapes, in general, gave wines of excellent quality, full, balanced, and very rich in color

Vintage

the grapes were selected during picking, destemmed, and then pressed. Skin contact lasted approximately ten days at a maximum temperature of 30° centigrade (86°Fahrenheit). The wine went through its malolactic fermentation before the end of the winter. The wine ages for at least 18 months in oak casks of different sizes and capacity to achieve great balance. A period of bottle aging in the Prunotto cellars preceded commercial release
