The terroir of Basarin and the high altitude of the vineyard give the wine spicy notes, as well as outstanding complexity and structure, typical of this area located between the municipalities of Neive and Treiso. This Langhe Nebbiolo is crisp and vibrant, with sweet floral and red fruit notes at the heart of its structure, along with hints of rose petal. On the palate we find mint and licorice, which become even more persistent towards the finish.
“I can’t say enough good things about the Sottimano family and the work they have done over the years to firmly establish themselves among Barbaresco’s top growers.” – Antonio Galloni
“From top to bottom, this is an impressive set of wines from Sottimano, a property that continues its rapid ascent into the top echelon of the region’s finest estates.” – Wine Advocate
"The 2021 Langhe Nebbiolo, from young vines in Basarin, is far from an easy going wine. If anything, it needs time in bottle to be at its best. Today bright acids and piercing tannins dominate, and there is a fine persistence, not to mention tons of class. Crushed flowers, chalk, white pepper and a burst of red berry fruit linger." - 90 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
