2008 Prunotto Barolo DOCG$39.95 -- 2008 Prunotto Barolo DOCG
91pts(WA) The 2008 Barolo emerges from the glass with juicy dark berries, sweet spices, tobacco and incense, all in a medium-bodied style that is quite appealing. The 2008 shows the personality of the year in a fairly approachable style. The 2008 finishes with lovely vinous energy but ultimately it is a bit simple. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2020.
This is a terrific set of new releases from Prunotto. In particular, this year I was impressed with the quality and consistency of the entry-level offerings. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate October, 2012
91pts (WE) This opens with bold intensity and delicate background tones of dried cassis, cola, licorice and cedar. Itís a dry but exceedingly delicate wine with a fine texture and polished tannins. Wine Enthusiast September, 2012
90pts(IWC)Pale red with an amber edge. Sour cherry, rose petal, camphor and spices on the nose. Vibrant and suave in the mouth, offering a restrained sweetness and good balancing acidity. Builds nicely on the back end, finishing with nobler tannins than the 2008 Barbaresco normale. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Oct/Nov 2011
