Critic Notes

The 2008 Barbaresco Pajore, from one of the best vineyards in Treiso, is a harmonious, totally complete wine. It flows from the glass with menthol, spices, pine, dark cherries and licorice in a wonderfully expressive style that captures the essence of this site. It is one of the few 2008s that has fine definition in aromatics, fruit and structure. All of the elements meld together beautifully towards the sweeping finish. This is undeniably attractive. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028. ||This is a stunning set of wines from the Sottimano family. The 2008 Barbareschi are among the wines of the vintage and are not to be missed. The transparency and sheer class of these wines is first-rate.||Various American importers, including Michael Skurnik, Syosset, NY; tel. (516) 677-9300, Estate Wines Ltd., San Rafael CA; tel.

Produttori del Barbaresco - The Single Vineyard Riservas
It is a rare chance to taste all the single vineyards side by side and the best opportunity to really try and understand the nuances and terroirs of each of the separate sites. What is immediately clear is however variable in their tannin profiles, aromatics and fruit flavours, they are all incredibly consistent in quality. There isn’t a bad wine in the line-up, more than ...
