Winemaker's Notes

"The 2007 Dolcetto d'Alba Bric del Salto reveals balsamic overtones wrapped around a core of dark red fruits, spices and minerals. Made in a totally elegant and finessed style, it represents the essence of first-rate Dolcetto from Barbaresco. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.

I can't think of too many properties that have made such huge strides in quality as Sottimano has. Recent bottles of the 2001 and 2004 Barbaresco Pajore revealed an enormous leap in elegance and finesse. Fortunately, Sottimano's entry-level wines are every bit as delicious as their Barbarescos, so readers won't need to mortgage the house to drink great wines from this producer. I know I am starting to sound like a broken record, but these are truly exceptional wines at this level, or any level for that matter."
