Sottimanoresults 1-2 of 2
The Sottimano winery was founded in 1975 by Maggiore Sottimano; the first step was purchasing the cellar and the vineyard in the Cotta’ area, a very highly reputed area for Nebbiolo grapes. Since then, Mr. Rino Sottimano the owner has developed the estate by buying other prestigious vineyards: Cotta, Curra, Fausoni, Pajore’ and, more recently, Basarin. Currently, our family cultivates an average of 18 hectares and the production is divided into five ”crus” of Barbaresco: Curra, Cotta, Fausoni, Basarin and Pajore, one Dolcetto ”Bric del Salto”, one Barbera ”Pairolero” and a dry Brachetto, called ”Mate”. The company produces an average of 85,000 bottles. Rino has been joined by his son Andrea, as winemaker, and his daughter Elena to follow the family business. Particular attention is given to the cultivation of the vineyards; in this way, through very low yields, it is possible to produce structured, full bodied wines, which can be aged for several years. Since 1990, the vines have undergone only natural processes, with no use of pesticides, artificial fertilizers or diserbants; the traditional diseases, that normally afflict the vineyards, are treated using eco-friendly products. The application of these products is kept to a minimum and they are used only if necessary. During the vinification, we don’t use selected yeasts or bacterians, and the wines are bottled without filtering or fining.

Antonio Galloni 95 Points - A dark, enveloping wine, the 2013 Barbaresco Pajoré is pure seduction. Succulent black cherry, plum, spice and menthol flesh out in the glass. In some ways, the Pajoré is the ripest and most obvious of these wines, which is a bit unusual, as Pajoré is often very tightly wound. Still that power and succulence is accompanied by deep layers of spice and balsamic notes that are so typical of Pajoré, one of the greatest sites in all of Piedmont. Naturally, the tannins ... click for more details

Sottimano Pajore Barbaresco 2011  750ML     
Antonio Galloni 95 Points - Sottimano's 2011 Barbaresco Pajoré bursts from the glass with licorice, smoke, sweet spices and leather. Dense and powerful, yet also light on its feet, the 2011 is remarkably well-balanced. Sweet rose petal, raspberries and spice notes meld into the intensely perfumed, balsamic finish. This is a decidedly feminine, floral Pajoré with more red-toned fruit than is typically the case. In 2011, the Pajoré speaks to polish above all else.... click for more details
