The Langhe Nebbiolo is produced from the vineyard of Basarin, in the area of Neive. It is an historical and very prestigious vineyard. Its position on the border between the zone of Neive and Treiso, together with the high altitude, give to the wines a particular note of spices with a hint of licorice, as well a great complexity and a considerable structure. The vines are very young, about 14-15 years old, and for this reason the grapes cannot yet express the richness of polyphenols or all the aromas and the "nuances" that an important cru like this could have. That's why we decided to declassify it from Barbaresco docg to Langhe Nebbiolo.

Wine AdvocateSottimano's 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo is a juicy, fruit-forward wine that paints a pretty picture of young Nebbiolo. The wine also makes a great argument for the quality of the 2016 vintage, especially as it pertains to this magnificent grape from Piedmont. It's hard not to be super enthusiastic for a wine with this wide drinking appeal and food-pairing versatility. In truth, this wine shows enough tannic firmness for some near-term aging, although there's no good reason not to drink it now. With 20,000 bottles made, you get phenomenal value here.
