Sottimano's Langhe Nebbiolo is a single-vineyard bottling from the Basarin cru; a historic and very prestigious vineyard located on the border between Neive and Treiso. The vineyard's high altitude brings great complexity and considerable structure to its wines, along with notes of spice and hints of licorice.

Wine AdvocateThey did not make this wine in 2017 because of hail damage, but the 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo turned out quite elegant and fine. The vines are about 15 years old here, and yet you pick up very refined notes. Again, we're dealing with an ample 30 days of maceration and ten days of submerged cap, similar to every Barbaresco they make, but the difference here is you don't need perfect skins like you do with the other expressions. It's one of those wines that leaves a few unanswered questions, and even Andrea Sottimano is left a little perplexed when trying to come up with a comparison for this wine, surmising only that the elegant nature is due to the long maceration times. At any rate, the 2016 vintage is definitely more classic in its approach and has more power than this, but the 2018 is its own mysterious thing. Some 22,000 bottles were made.
