Prunotto

Prunotto

In 1904 a cooperative Ai Vini delle Langhi was set up by wine growers of the area; this was subsequently taken over and renamed by Alfredo Prunotto in 1923. After another change of ownership, Antinori acquired the estate and have maintained the excellent level of quality sought by Alfredo Prunotto.Prunotto were the first winery to establish the Cru’s concept and is one of the top five estates in Piedmont.

ITALY

The Antinori family first became involved with the Prunotto winery in 1989.

Initially handling distribution and then in 1994, when the Colla brothers decided to retire, they took over production upholding the excellent quality standards that Alfredo Prunotto successfully achieved. The winery’s production philosophy, always extremely attentive to details and deeply passionate about wine, brought Prunotto and the Antinori family together to face a new challenge: to explore and develop the potential of this new terroir where both local and international varieties can express the area’s remarkable territorial identity.

Viticulture

Prunotto’s vineyards extend over an area of approximately 65 hectares (161 acres) in the territories of The Langhe and Monferrato and are subdivided into smaller parcels of land and single vineyards where great red wines are produced. Respectful of regional traditions, white wines are also crafted such as Moscato d’Asti and Arneis as well as an innovative rosé and two brands of grappa, one from Barolo Bussia and one from Barbera d’Asti Costamiòle. A Continuous Challenge in Wine Country Prunotto’s vineyards extend over an area of approximately 71 hectares (183 acres) in the territories of The Langhe and Monferrato and are subdivided into smaller parcels of land and single vineyards where great red wines are produced. Respectful of regional traditions, white wines are also crafted such as Moscato d’Asti and Arneis as well as an innovative rosé and two brands of grappa, one from Barolo Bussia and one from Barbera d’Asti Costamiòle.

Winemaking

Prunotto conducts studies, research and development and actively carries out experimentation in the vineyards without any pre-planned formulas. Particular attention is given to promoting sustainable agriculture and improving manual techniques. Each year and each harvest are unique and for this reason Prunotto’s winemaking team evaluates the best timing and techniques for vineyard management and for the production of each vintage respecting varietal characteristics while expressing its finest potential. A Balance between Tradition and Innovation Prunotto’s production philosophy has always been directed towards progress, continuous advancements in our cellars and in aging techniques, a constant challenge to achieve the finest quality. A new winery was built in 1999, adjacent to the historic offices designed by architect Della Piana in the 1970’s, exclusively for vinification and aging. Over the years, we have also replaced the outdated cement vats with stainless steel tanks that are able to preserve the grapes’ characteristic aromas and fragrances. The new vertical vinification tanks are also stainless steel and are lower in height with a larger diameter allowing for greater contact of the skins with the juice during fermentation.
