Barbaresco. Palish ruby. Embryonic, tight nose with savoury minerally hints and just a shimmer of red fruit. A core of sweet raspberry fruit framed by firm, ripe and polished tannins. Spectacular tannic structure that is totally captivating and with youthful, focused red fruit.
2019 Vintage Report
The 2019 vintage is already being likened to 2016 and 2010, possibly better than both.

A cool and quite rainy spring allowed the vineyards to recover and re-generate; with June came warm weather and this continued through the summer, with, thankfully, no heat spikes as we have seen in recent years. The warm days carried on well into October, allowing the grapes to reach perfect ripeness while cool nights maintained vital freshness, the difference between a good vintage and a great one!

Estate Information
Founded in 1994 by Tino and Federica Colla. The family are Barbaresco' royalty; Federica is the niece of the legendary winemaker, Beppe Colla. As the owner of Prunotto, Beppe Colla was the pioneer of single cru Barbaresco back in the 1960s. He also helped plot the Barolo DOC's boundaries with Renato Ratti and Gildo Cavallotto (whose wonderful wines we also offer); truly a trailblazer for the region.

From the start in 1994, Beppe provided guidance and mentorship. It has thrust this estate to the very pinnacle of Barbaresco winemaking in a relatively short time. The wines get constant and consistent high praise from critics, especially Galloni and Walter Speller
