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.
