"Sottimano's 2006 Langhe Nebbiolo is made from the Basarin vineyard, which historically was known as a source for top-flight Dolcetto. The wine possesses the super-ripe qualities of the vintage in its candied cherries, flowers and spices. A wine that would give many producers' Barbarescos a run for their money, Sottimano's Langhe Nebbiolo is a first-class effort in every way. It is one of the most compelling values in wine today. Simply put, it is awesome. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2021."
