Alcoholic nose. There is something fruity here, but I can't pin it down. Nice brown barolo color. Good heat and tannins. Some tar on the tongue. Some real light small berries, are berry subtle. hehe. Good vino here.

    Good bright dark red. Slightly balsamic aromas of cherry cola, dried spices, cedar and cigar box, with some suggestions of very ripe fruit. Lush, round and silky but less showy and aromatic today than the Cotta. Less primary fruit and more soil and tobacco here, supported by firm limestone-driven acidity. Finishes with dusty tannins that reach the front teeth, and a building sweetness that leaves behind nuances of herbs and spices.

    The 2010 Barbaresco Pajore resonates off every corner of the palate with layers of rich, intense fruit. Here, too, the balance of fruit and tannin is simply masterful. The pure pedigree of the vintage comes through in spades. Pajore is the only Sottimano Barbaresco made from vines in Treiso (rather than Neive), so it always stands a bit apart from the other wines in their lineup. The 2010 is shaping up to be a jewel. Anticipated maturity: 2018–2030.

    A round, supple version, with cherry and berry fruit shaded by spice and tobacco notes. Firms up as the tannins assert themselves on the finish, but stays long and fresh. Best from 2016 through 2030.

    A supple, floral- and cherry-flavored red, elegant in demeanor and well-integrated. Shows intensity and persistence from start to finish, with a long, spicy finish. Best from 2012 through 2023. 420 cases made. -BS Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2007 Sottimano Barbaresco Pajore 750ml
