Prunotto is an Italian estate with a cultural, historical and traditional winemaking tradition. The wines produced have the typical scents of the grapes grown in its surrounding hills. The various vineyards of the Antinori - Prunotto estate are located in the best agricultural areas of Piedmont. The estate uses all the modern technology necessary to produce high quality Piedmont wines.
The 50 hectares of the estate are located in Alba, at an equal distance from Barbaresco and Barolo. This iconic name among Piedmont wines is set on a beautiful, smooth and colourful plain in the Langhe and Roero region.
This Barbaresco by Antinori – Prunotto was developed from vineyards located in the Treiso and Neive communes.
A cold and wet winter preceded a mild spring that advanced an early budding in the vineyard. The particularly hot and dry summer did not have an impact on the vineyard thanks to sufficient water reserves.
