Prunotto’s Barolo 2016 is garnet red in color. The nose is complex and generous with pleasing aromas of rose petals, red fruit and spicy notes. The palate is full, well-balanced with velvety tannins.
Fragrant and refined, this focused red opens with alluring scents of iris, woodland berry, botanical herb and pipe tobacco. It’s vibrant and linear, featuring strawberry compote, raspberry and star anise framed in bright acidity and taut, polished tannins. Drink 2022–2028.

This is elegant, exuding cherry, plum, eucalyptus and mineral flavors. There is a chalky element in the texture that's clean and drying as this tightens up on the finish, with fine intensity and length. Best from 2023 through 2040.
- Wine Spectator, 93 pts.
Extremely perfumed on the nose with cherry, cedar and light asphalt character. Full-bodied, yet vivid and energetic with fine, polished tannins and a long, succulent finish. Pretty already, but better after 2022 and onwards.
