Prunotto Barbera d'Alba 2020 - Piedmont
Bottle size: 750ml
A traditional Barbera, fresh and easy to drink, from vineyards whose soils are composed of clay and sand.
A wine with great balance enriched by short-term aging in oak barrels.
The 2018 vintage started out with a long winter season with frequent rain showers that replenished groundwater reserves that were depleted after 2017’s drought conditions. Winter weather conditions persisted until the beginning of March with lower than average temperatures causing a delay in vine growth. Frequent rain and lower than average temperatures prevailed during spring and the first half of summer. Halfway through July, temperatures rose considerably and a long stretch of beautiful weather followed favoring slow, regular berry ripening. Despite these climatic conditions, there was a disparity in berry maturation from vineyard to vineyard. Harvesting operations of Barbera grapes began on September 24th and was completed on October 9th.
The vineyards of Prunotto extend across an area of about 50 hectares, in the region of Langhe and Monferrato, segmented into small plots of land consisting of individual crus from which great red wines are produced.
In honor of piemontese tradition, wines derived from white grapes such as Moscato d'Asti and Arneis are also produced here, along with two grappas made of Barolo Bussia and Barbera d'Asti Costamiole. Prunotto also produces a series of wines from other native varietals which represent and tell the history of these lands. These varietals are Dolcetto d'Alba, Barbera d'Alba, and Nebbiolo, and are classic expressions of the characteristic Piemontese grapes.
The winery conducts studies, research, and experiments in the vineyards, without adopting a pre-set formula. Instead, the methods and time needed for the care of the vineyards and the production of each individual wine are evaluated each year, keeping in mind the special characteristics of each one and helping them live up to their maximum potential.
