Sweet dark cherry, pomegranate, mint, spices and leather meld together effortlessly. The Cottà has a bit less delineation and nuance than some of the other wines in the range, but more immediacy and mid-palate juiciness. As the years have passed, so many wines in this lineup have improved, but the Cottà has remained pretty much static, for better or worse. -AG

A tannic young wine with backbone and structure. Medium body, berry and walnut character and a chewy finish. Needs time to soften. Better in 2019.

Wine Spectator, August 2016
This red yields barely a glimmer of cherry, licorice and tar for now, yet all the elements are in place for a medium-term evolution. Stiff, mouthcoating tannins patrol the finish. Best from 2019 through 2032. 400 cases... This red yields barely a glimmer of cherry, licorice and tar for now, yet all the elements are in place for a medium-term evolution.

You'll find alluring scents of black-skinned berry, baking spice, violet, a hint of leather and a balsamic note on this well-structured red.

You'll find alluring scents of black-skinned berry, baking spice, violet, a hint of leather and a balsamic note on this well-structured red. The chewy palate shows dense black cherry, raspberry compote, licorice, clove and pipe tobacco alongside velvety tannins and fresh acidity. A hint of cinnamon closes the finish. It's already approachable but also has great mid-term aging potential. Drink through 2023.

The 2013 Barbaresco Cottà is thinner and subtler in approach, and those added oak tones feel heavier and more apparent as a result.

The 2013 Barbaresco Cottà is thinner and subtler in approach, and those added oak tones feel heavier and more apparent as a result. The fruit is slightly masked but will emerge with greater intensity and power as the wine ages forward in the bottle. Give this Barbaresco a few more years to reach balanced integration. The 2.8-hectare Cottà vineyard is located between the towns of Neive and Barbaresco. -MN
