Prunotto

From the best lands of Piedmont, the best “Cru” of our areas: Barolo,Barbaresco,Barbera,Dolcetto,Moscato d’Asti,Roero Arneis,Dolcetto and Grignolino.

The estate Prunotto is situated at Alba, and owns about 50 hectares of the best vineyards in Piedmont. Near to the historical site of 1970, which was designed by the Architect Della Piana, there are the cellars which are destinated for the vinification and the ageing of the wines. The Antinori family of the Prunotto winery have always wanted to be known Internationally, for this reason they have invested heavily over the years buying new oak barrels (barriques) for the ageing, new bottling machinery, better spaces for the working of the grapes, a structure that has been modified to be termo-conditional that maintains a constant temperature all year round. Well everything is possible so that they can raise to the maximum the quality of their “cru” products of Piedmont, like the Barolo,Barbaresco,Barbera,Dolcetto,Moscato d’Asti,Roero Arneis,Dolcetto and Grignolino.


The history of the Winery Prunotto was founded many years before the Antinori family took over in 1989.


At the beginning of the 1900’s the antique Cantina Sociale”Ai Vini delle Langhe” di Serralunga d’Alba was founded by some important people connected to the history of Alba, together with some small wine producers. This Cantina Sociale unfortunately did not have much success, in fact the first few years were very difficult, owing to the out-break of the First World War, an uncertain economic moment and also a very poor production of wine. For these reasons, in 1922 it was taken-over by the young Alfredo Prunotto who re-baptised it with his name, then sold to the Colla brothers in 1956 who successively started to collaborate with the Marqiuses Antinori, and whose descendants still today are involved.
