?Sottimano?s 2010 Barbaresco Cotta captures the essence of this Neive vineyard and the vintage in its round, seamless fruit and explosive personality. It is another gorgeous, highly promising wine. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030.?
92-94 points, The Wine Advocate #203
2010 is considered by some in Piemonte the best vintage of all time giving wines perfect harmony between fruit, acidity and tannins. This wine is a great example of that and displays an unbelievable amount of complexity including a lovely, pure cherry, spice, dried leaves, minerality, cedar box and powerful drying but well integrated tannins. This wine will benefit from a decant and improve over the next 10 years minimum.
