Sottimano – Barbaresco Cottà – 2017
We are talking about the end of the 1960s when Rino, having finished his oenological school, decides to start producing wine, a few hectares but in the best areas for the production of Barbaresco. Today the company owns 18 hectares, 5 of the best Barbaresco crus: Cottà, Pajorè, Fausoni, Currà and Basarin conquered with hard sacrifices, work and above all a lot of passion. The philosophy of the company has always been to respect the earth as much as possible, so in the vineyard no chemicals or herbicides are used to avoid altering the natural balance of the hills and in the cellar the approach is the same, Rino together with his children , who have joined the team, produces wines that reflect the terroir and best enhance the characteristics of the grape.
Cottà, one of the best known cru in the municipality of Neive and also one of the first to be vinified in purity, the Sottimano company owns here plants with an average age of 60 years in excellent exposure. The wines that come from this mention are solid without ever exceeding the density and vigor of the tannin, elegant and sensual with a long aging potential.
2017, an “early” vintage, a bit dry which still allowed the vine to fully develop, giving us full-bodied wines with great structure, and obviously very generous from the point of view of readiness to drink.
