Sottimano’s 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo is a terrific example of the year. Crushed flowers, spice and bright red berry fruit all meld together in this very pretty, expressive Nebbiolo from Barbaresco-designated vineyards. The 2016 is an overachieving wine in its peer group, and absolutely delicious. $25.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2019)

100% Barbaresco, declassified younger vines (20 years) from one of the top crus in Neive. This is a real bargain, but needs another 2-3 years in bottle to reveal fruit character. A more austere treatment than their Barbaresco designated wines, but with at least intermediate term cellaring potential and about half the price. I would have decanted this another 2-3 hours if possible, but I suspect the young tannins might still overshadow the youthful fruit character. Wait for this one.

Muted nose. Soft flower. Moderate tannic grip. Sun-drenched dark fruit. Definitely Nebbiolo, but not particularly compelling.

Gritty, earthy and tannic - it's very young but was still enjoyable. And you can't beat the value.
