Occhetti is ruby red in colour with garnet hues, typical of the Nebbiolo grape variety. The nose is elegant with notes of raspberries accompanied by hints of roses and liquorice. The palate is full and harmonious with a lengthy tannin-rich finish.

A historic wine from the Prunotto estate produced since the 1970’s. Soils are characterized by superficial sand, stratified levels of gravel and layers of clay and limestone that give the wine elegance and soft tannins.

The wine was aged in a mixture of seventy-hectolitre and 300-litre oak barrels, with no new oak.

Suitable for Vegans

 

Alfredo Prunotto founded his business in 1922, and was one of Piemonte’s most dynamic exporters until his retirement in 1956. The company passed then to Prunotto’s friend Beppe Colla, now a revered winemaker and one of the founding fathers of modern Piemonte. The quality of the top wines goes without saying, but the rest of the range is made with equal aplomb. The style is modern without being exaggerated: freshness of aroma and approachability of structure are viewed as positives, but copious new oak is not.

 A single-site wine from the Occhetti vineyard, situated 250 metres above sea level in Monteu Roero. The soil is sandy, with gravel and some calcareous clay; the exposure is south/south-west.
