Sottimano – Barbaresco Riserva – 2013
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.
Barbaresco Riserva is produced only in the best vintages, for this particular wine the oldest plots in the Cottà and Pajorè area are used, chosen for their characteristics. The 2013 vintage brought us back to the past, when Nebbiolo was harvested in late October, but this delay made it possible to achieve an excellent concentration of aromas, coloring matter and sugars. In short, a structured and long-lived vintage, we can undoubtedly say “classic”!
