Antinori Prunotto Barbera d'Alba Pian Romualdo 2009
Alfredo Prunotto gave his name and thirty-three years of his life to this renowned winery in Piedmont. Since 1989 it has been owned by the Antinori family, who have sought to boost the already high standards by extending the vineyard holdings, including plots in the de facto grands crus of Bric Turot and Bussia. The quality of the top wines goes without saying, but the rest of the range is made with equal aplomb. The style is modern without being exaggerated: freshness of aroma and approachability of structure are viewed as positives. This Barbera d’Asti is produced from grapes grown in the Agliano d’Asti area, where the Barbera vines thrive in loose soils rich in sand and calcareous clay. It is fragrant on the nose with hints of plum and cherry. On the palate it is well structured and soft, showing the typical red fruit and bright character of the Barbera variety.
Great Italian red. Nice and smooth. Not much body, but still a very enjoyable bottle. $15.99 WC

Intensives Purpurrot mit rubinroten Reflexen. In der Nase frisch, Brombeeren, Cassis, elegantes Holz und Weichselkirschen. Im Gaumen sehr saftig, mit präsenter Säure, zeigt feine Tannine und gutes Potenzial. Etwas Würze, rote Beeren, Unterholz und Röstaromen. Im Abgang recht lang und harmonisch.
