Barbaresco Pajore Sottimano 95ag 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

95 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous:"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." 12/15.
