Sottimano Lange Nebbiolo 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"Wonderful aromas of plulm and rose follow through to a full body, with refined tannins and lots of pretty fruit. Very delicate for the vintage. Best after 2012..92" WS Insider 06/08. "The 2005 Barbaresco Cotta is the most open of these wines. This round, generous wine flows with masses of ripe dark fruit intermingled with sweet toasted oak and balsamic nuances. There is wonderful integrity of fruit, all supported by well-integrated tannins and a vein of acidity that frames the wine beautifully. This is another superb wine from Sottimano. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025...93" WA 10/08.
