Description

The 1993 Barolo Cantine Prandi have come from the producer's cellars where they have laid undisturbed since bottling.

Cantine Prandi was established in the 1920s when grandfather Farinetti Majorino envisioned selling part of the wine produced for family use to the commercial market. In the 1960's his nephew Giovanni came to lend a hand and was instrumental in shaping the winery and its future development. Up to 2009, Giovanni's son Alessandro looked after the beautiful vineyards situated in the long hills surrounding Piemonte. In recent years, due to Alessandro's passing, the winery ceased production. Vintage Wine and Port worked to secure the remaining Prandi Library stock and are proud to offer a piece of history and the last ever bottles produced from this historic Barolo producer .

Barolo is known as the 'king of wines' and is made from the Nebbiolo grape. On the nose you should expect heady aromas of rose, leather, vanilla, cherry, pepper, cranberry, strawberry and truffle. Its fruit concentration is perfectly knitted with its high tannins and acidity. It's a powerful wine but remarkably subtle. Don't underestimate it and certainly serve it with food to show at it's best. Nebbiolo has naturally high tannins and acidity, so it will take on full-flavoured, rich foods such as hearty stews, truffle risottos and steak.

Reviews

93/100 Points- VWP Review -February 2022

Decanted 3 hours before serving and it was noted that there was very little sediment in the bottle. Medium garnet colour. Incredibly fragrant with leather, red cherry and fresh picked earthy porcini. The nose continued to evolve over a few minutes to include tobacco and chocolate, tart cherry and slightly dried plum. On the palate the tannins are well integrated, good acidity and plum and cherry flavours. It lingers for nearly a minute!
