Alfredo Prunotto Barbera d'Alba 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Classification: Barbera d'Asti DOC Vintage: 2005 Grapes: Barbera 100 % Origin & Soil: From vineyard in the Agliano d'Asti area. Sedimentary soil of Pliocenic origin, rich in sand and calcareous clay. Taste: Vivid, ruby red in colour. On the nose, fragrant, with hints of plum and cherry. On the palate it is well structured with soft tannins (typical of the Barbera variety). Both the choice of grapes coming from loose, sandy soil together with modern techniques give this wine a fragrant, vinous character which can be particularly enjoyed when the wine is young. A perfect match for a variety of dishes such as pasta, light cheeses and white meats. Ideal serving temperature is 13/15 °C. Climate Vintage: The 2005 vintage has an irregular climate but to sum up it is satisfying. After a relatively mild winter, with scarce precipitations, there is a fresh but poor in rains spring. At the start of summer, there is an heavy thermic rise with some fresh periods but without rains. September starts with some rainy days. Then the climate has stabilized and it comes back summer until the end of the month, with large temperature ranges, useful to exalt the sugar and the aromatic substances stored in the grapes Vinification: The harvest starts the 28th of september and finishes the 3rd of October. The grapes arrived in the cellars were destemmed and pressed, and maceration followed for 5 days at a maximum temperature of 25 °C. The malolactic fermentation was completed before winter and the wine was transferred into stainless steel tanks and bottled in early spring. Alcohol 13,5 % Total Acidity 5.70 g/l Dry extract 30,50 g/l
