SOTTIMANO Nebbiolo, Langhe DOC 2020

A stunning value, Sottimano’s Langhe Nebbiolo is colloquially known as a ‘baby Barbaresco’, coming as it does from the Barbaresco cru of Basarin. The declassified fruit from these young (15 yo) vines, gives a light to medium bodied wine, showing bright red fruits and spices, with hints of dried rose, cherries and tobacco. Beautifully refined Nebbiolo tannins round out the fresh, vibrant finish. About as good an introduction to Nebbiolo as you can get and a great match for salumi, red meats, pasta and pizza.

Winery SOTTIMANO

'Andrea Sottimano's 2011s and 2012s are fabulous. The 2011 Barbarescos capture the radiance of the year, while the just-bottled 2012s show gorgeous purity of fruit along with a greater sense of restraint. Readers who haven't tasted the Sottimano wines in a few years will want to check out these superb, pedigreed Barbarescos, as quite a bit has changed here, particularly over the last 5-6 years. Today, the approach to farming is decidedly less interventionalist than in the past. Sottimano no longer uses pesticides and herbicides. Yields aren't quite as dramatically low as they once were. The same hands off approach carries through to winemaking. Cool temperatures encourage slow and long malolactic fermentations, a long aging on the lees with minimal rackings, an approach that is much more typical in Burgundy than it is in Piedmont. Today's wines are transparent, crystalline and full of personality. There is no question quality has never been higher.' Antonio Galloni, October 2014 'I can

'I can’t say enough good things about the Sottimano family and the work they have done over the years to firmly establish themselves among Barbaresco’s top growers. This is one of the few places in Piedmont where every wine is consistently delicious. The only question is how delicious. In recent years, Andrea Sottimano has worked to give his Barbareschi extended time on the lees in a cold cellar, which also slows down the malos. This distinctly Burgundian approach stands in stark contrast to the way most French oak-aged wines are made in Piedmont, where malos typically follow right after the alcoholic fermentations.' Antonio Galloni, October 2012.
