The Prunotto soils are of an age attributable to the Tortonian - Messinian period, particularly rich in calcareous clays and elements such as magnesium and manganese.One of its main characteristics is certainly the complex and ample scent with hints of violets and undergrowth. The taste is full and velvety, very well-balanced.
The history of the Deltetto house Barolo began in 1961 when a young Carlo Deltetto decided to produce his first vintage of Barolo.Thanks to his intuition, today our company is among the very few “historic wineries” authorized to make Barolo wine outside the area, directly in our cellars in Canale.
Barolo Tradizione is a wine that comes from the famous Piedmontese Nebbiolo vineyards. The soils on which these vineyards are cultivated are characterized by a good slope, subsoil composed of argila and sand. It goes well with egg pasta traditions of the Langhe, meat first courses and red meat dishes in general. Be amazed by the harmony and complexity of this wine, always elegant in the mouth and with an excellent body to taste.
We were the first to begin producing this local selection, in 1988. This Barolo has a clear identity, representing the potency of the terroir of Serralunga and the elegance of the Fontanafredda style: floral, balsamic, vibrant and crisp. A wine with a long cellar life (at least 15-20 years).
The Barolo DOCG Tortoniano derives from a very demanding year for the management of the vineyard.The summer brought about two thinning and peeling steps to better preserve the perfect health of the grapes and the integrity of the skins. From August until the harvest, the climate improved and allowed an optimal ripening of the grapes.The Barolo DOGC Tortoniano has a broad taste, is of good structure with a texture of silky tannins that surprise by giving harmony already in the youthful phase of this Barolo.
