Prunotto Bussia Barolo 2009
An intense garnet red in color with ruby highlights and with aromas of very ripe berry and cherry fruit combined with floral and spicy notes. Powerful flavors with supple and ample tannins and a long finish and aftertaste. Its full body and significant structure make it an ideal match for meat, game, or cheese.
The 135-acre Prunotto estate is located in Alba, in a rolling plain surrounded by the vineyards of the Langhe and Roero regions. It is immersed in a countryside which seduces with the natural beauty of its surrounding hills, alternating with small, sloping valleys which are gently woven between the hillocks. In 1922, Alfredo Prunotto along with his wife, Luigina, purchased a struggling cooperative winery, Cantina Sociale ai Vini delle Langhe, and renamed it to Prunotto.
