"100% Nebbiolo from 50-70 year old vines. The fermentation and the maceration on the skins normally takes about 25 days. No selected yeasts are used. The malolactical fermentation happens naturally in French barrels coopered expressively for us by Francois Frères in Burgundy. The wine stays in these barrels for approximately 24 months, half of this time on its lees. 15% of the barrels used for aging this wine are new, the remaining 85% have previously been used up to 4 times. There is no filtering and no fining prior to bottling." —importer
"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 need time to soften, but this is nevertheless a super-impressive, young Barbaresco from Sottimano that promises to drink well for many, many years. Drinking window: 2018 - 2033." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous
