Here are the scores of Sottimano’s wins on (Wine Enthusiast’s on-line magazine)

97 pt.

Sottimano 2016 Cottà (Barbaresco)

“Red berry, violet, forest floor, vanilla and balsamic aromas of menthol and camphor slowly appear on this stunning, radiant red along with whiffs of charcuterie. The vibrant, focused palate is young and taut but already impeccably balanced, evoking juicy red cherry, pomegranate, star anise and cool mint framed in firm acidity and tightly knit but fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity. It’s already fantastic but will hold for even more complexity. Best 2026–2036”. KERIN O’KEEFE

96 pt.

Sottimano 2016 Pajorè (Barbaresco)

“Elegant and structured, this full-bodied wine has aromas of ripe black-skinned berry, leather, menthol and baking spice. The focused palate shows great freshness and finesse, offering cranberry, red cherry, vanilla and licorice set against firm, fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity before a tight orange zest finish. Drink 2024–2036”. KERIN O’KEEFE

92 pt.

Sottimano 2014 Currà (Barbaresco)

“This wine’s truffle, underbrush, dark berry and baking spice aromas take center stage. Still young and primary, it shows unripe red berry, sage, ground clove, truffle and star anise flavors on the palate, structured with bracing tannins and vibrant acidity. Give it time to fully come together. Drink 2021–2028”. KERIN O’KEEFE
