    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine is a vivid and intense ruby red in color with a grapey and fruity (plum and cherry) aroma. Grapes grown on light and loose-textured soils and modern oenological techniques which enable producers to obtain and conserve fruit and freshness combine to make this a wine which is very pleasurable in its youth. For this reason it goes well with simple dishes such as hors d'oeuvres, soups, risotto, and pasta.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is pure, with blackberry and black cherry flavors that run deep. Coats the palate lightly, with a glycerine feel, offset by bright acidity and a touch of tannins that add a pleasant astringency on the finish.

    Prunotto's 2011 Barbera d'Asti Fiulot is another big, opulent wine bursting with fruit. The Fiulot isn't the last word in complexity, but it is a terrific wine for the money. There is plenty of intensity and opulence in the glass, along with the underlying nervousness of Asti to balance things out.

    A really nice Barbera with just the right amount of acidity. Wonderful fruit both black and red berries. Nice mouth watering mineral component.

    I liked this - I always think of it as a chewy wine - in a good way

    Not good. I think my bottle was bad. Not sure. It was bubbly and I did not expect that.
