Antinori wines from Piedmont: Alfredo Prunotto

The Prunotto winery, which lies between Barbaresco and Barolo, was already producing superb wines at the dawn of the 20th century. Prunotto began exporting Barolo and Barbaresco towards the middle of the last century. The Antinori family took over the company in 1994. These two traditional red wine varieties are still being produced today. Both wines are based on an old, autochthonous grape variety: the Nebbiolo. It gives rise to wines that, thanks to their high alcohol content and complexity, are suitable for long ageing, allowing them to best express their character. A Barbaresco such as the Prunotto Barbaresco DOCG has less tannin than its cousin, the Barolo, and requires a shorter ageing period to become drinkable. As a result, a Barolo like the Prunotto Barolo Bussia DOCG should be matured for twice as long.

Apart from Nebbiolo, the area is also renowned for wines made from the Dolcetto and Barbera grape varieties, which are rich in tradition. The Barbera stands out as a red wine because of its full-bodied appearance despite its low tannin content and is even ready to drink in its youth. Yet the Antinori family also continues to produce wonderful white wines such as the Roero Arneis DOC or sweet wines such as the Moscato d'Asti DOCG from old white wine grape varieties that originate from the region, such as the Arneis and the Muscato grape.
