Prunotto Barolo 2014

Piedmont, ItalyThe Prunotto estate is located in Alba halfway between Barbaresco and Barolo on the right side of the Tanaro river. The Antinori family has made a substantial investment into this historic property, and it’s now beginning to show. 2014 is fermented in stainless steel and aged 24 months in wooden casks. The grapes come off vineyards in Monforte, Castiglione Falletto, and Serralunga, pitching a pale red/orange colour. The attack is fresh with earthy red fruit flecked with roses and cedar. The attack is supple and round with fresh raspberries and licorice that finishes dry, with streaks of spice and tobacco. Elegant but needs more time in the bottle. You can drink it now with a steak but it will be best after 2023.Tasted: 24 September 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 51.99 BCLS Producer: Prunotto S.r.L.Distributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
