Barbaresco Basarin, Sottimano - 2019

Basarin is the latest vintage of the Sottimano stable and is produced with grapes from the vineyard of the same name in Neive, a historic and prestigious vineyard. Its position on the border between Neive and Treiso and its high altitude give the wine a particular spicy and liquorice note, as well as great complexity and structure. A new lord of Piedmont.

First vintage produced: 2015, following the purchase of the vineyard in 2014. Old vines (50-60 years old) at an altitude of 350 metres, close to the plot where the estate produces its Langhe Nebbiolo. This is a special vineyard, with a rare soil of limestone and minerals and a cool, windy climate and south-western exposure. All this creates the conditions to produce one of the most elegant and complex Barbaresco wines.


Fermentations and macerations last on average about 25 days. No selected yeast is used. Malolactic fermentation is not triggered; it occurs naturally in the spring following the harvest. It is carried out in François Frères Burgundy rooms of noble origin, where the wine remains for 18 to 22 months. There is no filtration or fining before bottling.

Founded in the 1970s by Rino Sottimano and taken over by two of his children, Elena and Andrea, this family-run estate in Barbaresco is a reference point in the Langhe region. Starting with a few plots of land in the Cottà cru, it now has almost 18 hectares spread over five of the best local crus, namely Currà, Cottà, Pajoré, Fausoni and Basarin. The vineyards have been cultivated organically since the very beginning, with absolute rigour in the work on the soil and the plants, and the approach in the cellar is equally respectful of the raw material. Fermentations and macerations last at least three weeks. No selected yeast is used. Malolactic fermentation is never triggered; it occurs naturally in the spring following the harvest. The wine is aged in François Frères Burgundy barrels of very noble origin, where it remains for 18 to 22 months. Each wine expresses its terroir and vintage with maximum precision and detail, combining the tannic elegance of the Burgundian approach in casks with the classic restraint of Piedmontese wines.
