The 2007 Barbaresco Cotta is terrific perhaps because the qualities of the vintage are so well suited to those of the vineyard. The 2007 is an intensely perfumed floral Cotta laced with freshly cut roses dark fruit sweet baking spices and minerals. In many vintages the Cotta can lean towards a fruit-driven style but in 2007 the aromatics fruit and structural components are as well balanced and seamlessly integrated as I have ever encountered here. This is a truly magnificent Barbaresco from Sottimano. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. -Antonio Galloni

A beautiful nose of plumes black cherries and flowers galore. Full bodied with soft round tannins and a coffee light vanilla and fruity aftertaste. Hard not to drink now but will deliver so much more in four or five years.

Oak aging (with 25% new French barrel) has helped shape sweet aromas of vanilla and exotic spice backed by loads of cherry and ripe forest berry. Characteristic aromas of violets wet earth and graphite appear at the back... Oak aging (with 25% new French barrel) has helped shape sweet aromas of vanilla and exotic spice backed by loads of cherry and ripe forest berry. Characteristic aromas of violets wet earth and graphite appear at the back and the wine is firm thick and smooth on the close. Consider long cellar aging: 10 years or more. M.L.

Medium red. Complex nose offers red fruits spices menthol tobacco and cedar. Juicy acidity gives this rich but youthfully bound-up wine a penetrating quality. Here the strong but rather suave tannins reach the front... Medium red. Complex nose offers red fruits spices menthol tobacco and cedar. Juicy acidity gives this rich but youthfully bound-up wine a penetrating quality. Here the strong but rather suave tannins reach the front teeth. Has the structure to reward aging. 92(+?)

An enticing mix of sweet cherry and blackberry fruit accented by spice and nicely integrated oak. This shows density and a firm edge that should soften with 2-3 years in the bottle. Fine length with a mineral finish. Best... An enticing mix of sweet cherry and blackberry fruit accented by spice and nicely integrated oak. This shows density and a firm edge that should soften with 2-3 years in the bottle. Fine length with a mineral finish. Best from 2012 through 2022. 830 cases made. -BS
