Sottimano Barbaresco Currá 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

The Sottimano family (Rino and his wife Anna with their three children) have worked hard to elevate their estate into the top echelon. Particular attention is given to the cultivation of the vineyards; in this way, through very low yields, it is possible to produce structured, full bodied wines, which can be aged for several years. Since 1990, the vines have undergone only natural treatments with no use of pesticides, artificial fertilizers or weedkillers; the traditional diseases that normally afflict the vineyards are treated using eco-friendly products. During the vinification no selected yeasts are employed, and the wines are bottled without filtration or fining.

Decanted and aired for 15 minutes before tasting. Nose of wood planks, new leather and blackberry. Opens up very nicely after about 30 minutes. Wine is very young and tight, but still quite drinkable. Pepper and roses on the palate.

Peppery, with a mix of berries. Let it decant for a bit before drinking.
