  • This is the only cuvée produced from Barbera at the domain; the wine is concentrated, with a central aromatic focus on ripe fruits and okay notes from its 15-month élevage. Elegant and fruity on the whole.

    Rino Sottimano acquired this domaine in 1975 and was joined by his son Andrea in 1994. The domaine places a great emphasis on tending its vines and cultivating its various terroirs organically. Combining tradition and modernity, the domaine ages its wines in barrels, following the Burgundy method (20% in new barrels), rejecting large barrels as incompatible with the ethos of the domaine. The wines are not filtered or fined.
