The 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo is fresh, vibrant and absolutely delicious. Sweet floral and red berry notes are front and center in this gorgeous, translucent Langhe Nebbiolo from Sottimano. In 2018, the fruit came from the Vigna del Parroco section of Basarin. Rose petal, lavender, mint and spice all linger on the finish. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2020)

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.
