The Sottimano winery was founded in 1974 by Maggiore Sottimano; the first step was purchasing the cellar and the vineyard in the Cottá area, a very highly reputed area for Nebbiolo grapes. Since then, Mr. Rino Sottimano the owner has developed the estate by buying other prestigious vineyards: Currá, Fausoni, Pajoré and, more recently, Basarin. Currently, our family cultivate an average of 13 hectares and the production is divided into five “crus” of Barbaresco: Currá, Cotta, Fausoni, Basarin and Pajoré,one Dolcetto “Bric del Salto”, one Barbera “Pairolero” and one dry Brachetto , called “Maté”. The company produces an average of 60,000 bottles. – Description from Dragac

  • Thought this was an interesting mailer I'd share with you all. Already forwarded the e-mail to Fox as he is one of the few champions of Dolcetto that I know. This would also fit in well with the "weekday wines" thread. Fox and I agreeing it's a good week day pasta night wine, or even a 1st wine in a flight of Northern Italian Reds. To all Best W...

  • I'm thinking about taking a short trip to Piemonte, mainly to try the highly-reputed wines of the region.  I'm not interested, though, in setting up visits to wineries. What I am thinking of doing is going to Slow Food recommended restaurants in Piemonte, and asking the owners or staff to help me select a wonderful wine from the region   and the... Read More

  • Attended a blind tasting last night with the OC Wine Elite and out of the 8 wines from different regions, the 2005 Sottomano Barbaresco Curra was easiest to identify as Nebbiolo. Even though the smell of "burnt rubber" is known to describe Cava, i've always associated the smell with Nebbiolo. Some of the members of the tasting were saying "Tar &... Read More
