Sottimano Barbaresco Cotta 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2007 Barbaresco Cotta is terrific, perhaps because the qualities of the vintage are so well suited to those of the vineyard. The 2007 is an intensely perfumed, floral Cotta laced with freshly cut roses, dark fruit, sweet baking spices and minerals. In many vintages the Cotta can lean towards a fruit-driven style, but in 2007 the aromatics, fruit and structural components are as well balanced and seamlessly integrated as I have ever encountered here. This is a truly magnificent Barbaresco from Sottimano...Sottimano’s 2007 Barbareschi have been impressive every time I have tasted them, starting from barrel a few years ago, to two tastings from bottle in recent months. Readers owe it to themselves to check out these exceptional, beautiful hand-crafted wines...95." WA 12/23/10
