    Winemaker's Notes:

    Prunotto Barbaresco is opaque garnet red in color, of good tonal intensity, complex in aroma with notes of red fruit and spices, full and velvety on the palate with a long finish and aftertaste. Its structured and full-bodied character make it an excellent match for meat dishes and for cheese.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Barbaresco Classico is very pretty in the way it wafts from the glass with sweet dried cherries, licorice, tobacco and sweet spices. It is a feminine, graceful wine loaded with class and personality. The Barbaresco Classico impresses for its classiness and terrific overall balance. This is a superb showing in 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.

    The Wine Advocate

    Prunotto's juicy Barbaresco offers loads of cherry and milk chocolate intensity with shadings of spice, cola and cedar wood on the finish. The wine’s tannins are still very solid, so give it 5–10 more years of bottle aging to soften up.

    This wine ranked 7th of 8—Valpolicellas (3) and Nebbiolos (5)—tasted 3/11 by 14 very experienced members of a group tasting wines blind every month for 34 years. At 91 points against, of a total possible 112 points against, it was statistically significantly worse than other wines in the group.
