The Prunotto estate is located in Alba, the most important city in the Langhe area halfway between Barbaresco and Barolo on the right side of the Tanaro river, on gentle plains surrounded by vineyards in the Langhe and Roero territories. Alba’s surrounding landscapes are captivating. The natural beauty of the gently rolling hills alternate with small sloping valleys covered by rows of meticulously cultivated vineyards.
"Fiulot" in Piemonte’s local dialect means "young man". This Barbera is delicate and easy to drink, a youthful expression of its fruit and aromas. Fiulot is an intense ruby red color. On the nose it is youthful and grapey with fruity aromas of plums and cherries. The palate is fragrant and extremely pleasing.
