This wine comes from the terroir of Basarin, in the Barbaresco appellation. Its position, on the border between the Neive and Treiso areas, together with its altitude, gives the wines a particular spicy note with a hint of liquorice, as well as considerable complexity and structure. The vines are young, 14-15 years old, and for this reason the estate does not yet claim to be a cru.


Fermentation and maceration of the skins normally takes about 12 days. No selected yeasts are used, only those of the terroir. Malolactic fermentation is done in French barrels, where the wine remains for about 10 months. 25% new wood. 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.
