Barbaresco Pajoré, Sottimano - 2019

This is one of the rarest Barbaresco wines and for good reason, as the Sottimano estate is one of the few to bottle it individually (Angelo Gaja is also the owner of this terroir). This new vintage offers a nose of citrus peel which then opens up to notes of candied cherry; the palate is opulent and carried by the richness of the year, it is a powerful, deliberate wine with great personality.

Old vines of 50, 60 and 70 years old, facing south-west on an altitude terroir (400 m.), therefore late, on Treiso. Rino Sottimano was the first local winemaker to develop this wine.


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.
