Young Andrea Sottimano and his father Rino produce wines of outstanding quality from thirteen lovingly cared for hectares in the Cottá, Currá, Fausoni, Pajoré and Basarin crus in the Treiso and Neive townships. Their Barbarescos are elegant, evocative, subtle and yet hearty.

The approach here is one of minimal intervention: indigenous yeasts, no fining or filtering. No insecticides are used and only organic fertilizers are used, and only minimally. Natural cover crops (grass cover) are left in the rows between the vines and are mowed 2 or 3 times a year. In autumn the soil of every other row between the vines is tilled.  Each of their four cru Barbarescos are given the same treatment to allow the uniqueness of each cru to express itself.  Fermentation is done in oak, of which about 30% is new, followed by 18-20 months in neutral barriques. 

"These are very serious, beautiful Barbarescos”- Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate 

"Sottimano shows a level of commitment to excellence I wish were more the rule rather than the exception in these parts."-Antonio Galloni, The Piedmont Report #5, October 2005
