    "Pairolero" Barbera d'Alba DOC 2016

    Purple red with black-violet reflections. A wonderfully concentrated and extract-rich Barbera with the right mixture of strength, fruit and juiciness. Some plum jam, black chocolate and spices combine to a dark fruity taste firework, which is framed by finely polished tannin and accompanied until a long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Hints of lavender, sage and blue/purplish berry fruit add myriad shades of this understated, gracious Barbera. In the 2016, readers will find a gorgeous wine that is also much less bombastic in style than in the past." Vinous

    "The fruit for the 2016 Barbera d'Alba Superiore Pairolero comes from the top-lying parts of Basarin, most of it from 40-, 50- and 60-year-old vines. It pours to a ruby color, having endured 25 days of maceration, just a few days of submersed cap and then about two years in oak. It spends those years on the less, and the Sottimano family counts on bottling it for as long as they can, to put the brakes on the wine, so to speak. This technique was learned in Burdgundy. What comes out of this process is a Barbera d'Alba that shows the power of the vintage yet is extremely well made, fresh and elegant." Robert Parker
