Sottimano Barbaresco Pajore 2016

Elegant and structured, this full-bodied wine has aromas of ripe black-skinned berry, leather, menthol and baking spice. The focused palate shows great freshness and finesse, offering cranberry, red cherry, vanilla and licorice set against firm, finegrained tannins and vibrant acidity before a tight orange zest finish. Drink 2024–2036. 96 Points Wine Enthusiast...

The nose is so fragrant but deep, taking you on a roller-coaster ride through dried nutmeg and thyme, red licorice and tar, dark brambleberries and spices. The full-bodied palate has marvelous polish and brilliant minerality, but even these pale in comparison to the raw power and meatiness in which this Barbaresco excels. A wine that will stun now, but delight in 2023. 96 Points James Suckling

Sottimano has five vineyard sites, and the Pajorè site near Treiso has the poorest soils of them all. These wines are more elegant and ready as as result. The 2016 Barbaresco Pajoré sees 40-plus days of maceration and one month of submerged cap in oak (the same goes for all of their Barbarescos), and this can be done only when the skins are perfectly healthy. Remember that this is organic farming we're talking about. The skins are still crunchy. Here you'll find a spicy, elegant and sweet Nebbiolo that is fine and yet really covers the mouth well. I picked up some exotic flower notes that are hard to pinpoint, and once again, the nice saline mouthfeel is impressive. 94 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
