750ml Bottle

From a selection of 50-70 year old vines, this Barbaresco begins with density and impact. On the nose, the bouquet is lled with deep cherried notes, dried savory herbs, and pummeled rocks. On the palate you'll nd that the tannins that form the spine of the wine are ne-grained and the acidity offers an unexpected and refreshing lift. A long and lingering nish bursting with fruit and savory notes brings this wine full circle.

Wine Spectator Cherry, strawberry, chicory and woodsy notes mark this solidly structured, tightly wound Barbaresco. The sweet fruit offsets the dense tannins for balance, and this stays long and vibrant. Best from 2024 through 2043. 750 cases made.

Wine AdvocateFrom a celebrated cru in Neive, the 2015 Barbaresco Cottà is a shapely, soft and accessible interpretation of Nebbiolo from a warm vintage. This mid-weight wine boasts a bright bouquet with ruby highlights. Those aromas are alert, tonic and straightforward in delivery. In terms of mouthfeel, this wine is firm and structured. However, the astringency is safely within bounds (for a young Nebbiolo). Some 10,000 bottles were made. Only 10% of the wine goes into new oak and the rest goes into neutral barrique.
