Prunotto Vigna Colonnello Barolo is an intensive red color with ruby highlights. The nose presents pleasing aromas of rose petals, raspberries and pomegranate that blend with spicy and balsamic notes. Its intense palate has soft supple tannins and a long lasting dense aftertaste.
The history of the Italian wine label of Antinori Prunotto dates back to 1904. This was when Notary Giacomo and Alfredo Prunotto formed the Social Cellar named Ai Vini delle Langhe in the Serralunga municipality in Langhe, Italy. Prunotto wines had a humble beginning, but very soon it started exporting Italian special Barolo and Barbaresco wines to all over the world. In 1994, the owners withdrew from running the Prunotto estate. At this time, the Antinori family joined hands with the Prunotto family to produce high-quality wines that spoke volumes about this region’s rich terroirs. This union also marked the beginning of the expansion of vineyards and wineries for this estate. The popular vineyards of this estate were Bussia, (considered as one of the most important in the Barolo region), Agliano (a significant area for producing Nizza), and Calliano (for researching on modern vines like the Albarossa and Syrah).
