Barbaresco Cottà, Sottimano - 2021

This was the first vineyard purchased by Rino Sottimano and through the benevolent hands of the family men, it gave birth in 2017 to one of the best Barbaresco's they have ever produced! This is their most graceful vintage: beautiful pure cherry fruit, reminiscent of pinot noir, for this wine with a fat, suave and elegant mouthfeel, opulent, but civilised!

Old vines of 50, 60 and 70 years old, facing south-west on one of the most famous crus of Neive. This is the historic cru of the estate and the one that has enabled it to establish its reputation.


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.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Roast duck - Saddle of chamois - White truffle risotto.


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.
