1 x Sottimano Barbaresco Fausoni DOCG 2015

Just as a teaser to see what this producer is like

The answer is excellent, and they continue to get better and better. I tasted all the 2015s with Elena Sottimano in April, and they are fantastic. A bottle of 2004 Fausoni was opened last night at a tasting and, while it could have used more air, it was delicious and still has a long life ahead of it.

My favourite single vineyard from Sottimano is Pajore, followed by Curra, but you can't go wrong with any of their wines.

Awesome to hear. Spent some time in Barolo this fall and absolutely fell in love with the region. Thinking now I've only been exposed to a few barbaresco producers and want to start branching out.... Any other recommendations?
