Andrea couldn't be happier, as his true love in life is b urgundy. t he b arbaresco p ajore is the elegant beauty in Andrea's portfolio. i t's a model of grace, elegance and precision, with a structure to carry it for decades in the cellar. i t's also one of the top wines of the vintage. ✦ Sottimano Barbaresco Pajore 2013 AG 95 » $59 "...pure seduction. s ucculent black cherry, plum, spice and menthol flesh out in the glass... power and succulence is accompanied by deep layers of spice and balsamic notes that are so typical of p ajoré, one of the greatest sites in all of p iedmont...a super-impressive, young b arbaresco from s ottimano that promises to drink well for many, many years."

Don't be surprised when Barbaresco joins Barolo on the world's stage.
