Barbaresco ‘Pajore’, Sottimano

100% Nebbiolo from 50-70 year old vines planted to soils rich in limestone.  The fermentation and the maceration occurs over 25 days. No selected yeasts are used. Fermentation happens naturally in French barrels coopered expressively for Sottimano by Francois Frères in Burgundy. The wine ages in barrel for approximately 24 months, half of this time on its lees. 10-15% of the barrels used for aging this wine are new, the remaining barrels have previously been used up to 4 times. There is no filtering and no fining prior to bottling.
