This month we are featuring wines from Prunotto Estate. This estate is over a century old, with the first harvest occurring in 1905.  It was founded in 1904 as a co-operative winery known as “Ai Vini delle Langhe”   (Of the wines of Langhe). We hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Cheers!

Fiulot Barbera d’Asti DOCG 2014

 

 

The wine is a vivid and intense ruby red in color with a grapey and fruity (plum and cherry) aroma. Grapes grown on light and loose-textured soils and modern oenological techniques which enable producers to obtain and conserve fruit and freshness combine to make this a wine which is very pleasurable even in its youth.
