Owned by Marchese Antinori of Tuscany, Alfredo Prunotto makes a modern style of Barolo. This is elegant, with ripe sweet fruit on the nose. A smoothly polished wine, it is rich in dark fruit and new wood flavors along with solid tannins. There is power here and the Nebbiolo dryness comes through on the finish.
