Sottimano Barbaresco Riserva 2010
For the production of this particular wine we have selected the oldest parcels in the Cottà and Pajorè area. The fermentation and the maceration of the skins takes about 45 days. No selected yeasts are used. The malolactic fermentation happens naturally in French barrels coopered expressively for us and for this wine by Francois Frères in Burgundy. The wine stays in these barrels for approximately 30 months on its lees. 25% of the barrels used for aging this wine are new, the remaining 75% have previously been used up to 4 times. There is no filtering and no fining prior to bottling.
