Rino Sottimano started small, but fine, by acquiring vineyards in the renowned Barbaresco site “Cotta”. Over the years, he has added top parcels from vineyards in the Curra, Fausoni, Basarin, and Pajorè sites. Since 1990, the vineyards have been cultivated without the use of synthetic chemical sprays or artificial fertilisers. Maceration and fermentation follow the traditional methods of 12 to 24 days. Rino’s son Andrea only ferments the wines spontaneously and does not use any other technical cellar aids. The malolactic fermentation also takes place spontaneously in French barriques, whereby the use of new barriques is so discreet that the wood note is hardly noticeable. After ageing, the wine is bottled without filtration or other fining. The wines convince with their fine-fruity, elegant, subtle, and yet savoury character.
Free yourself from the convenient tyranny of other people’s tasting notes! We encourage you to find out about the wines from the producers themselves by visiting their website.
