The Cotta vineyard is located between the zones of Neive and Barbaresco. It's full bodied and rich in polyphenol, typical of the Neive area, while its well-balanced tannic structure is definitely a mark of the Barbaresco area.
The history of Azienda Agricola Sottimano begins at the end of the 60s, when Rino Sottimano finished enological school and made the decision to produce wine. His first step was purchasing a house, cellar, and its surrounding vineyards in the Cotta cru. With the help of his wife, Anna, he expanded the vineyards from a few meager acres to the 44.5 acres it is today.
