Editorial Reviews for Prunotto Nebbiolo d'Alba Occhetti
A subzone of Monteroero Grapes are bought from a single vineyard 10 months in wood, almost all botte Nice classic nose of rose hips, prune plum and cherry in alcohol. Smooth and nicely balanced in the mouth this is easygoing on the palate and very much in the style of the vintage. With good fruit, modest complexity, classic hints of leather appear early in the palate, this is rather a clean fresh finish, and classic Nebbiolo, with good acids and tannins that are notably ripe and almost soft here, typical of Roero and 2011. There’s good persistence to the fruit, as this turns a bit more complex and even firms up a touch in the mouth with nice perfumed wild sour cherry and dried red plum on the finish. 88pts
