Buy Sottimano Barbaresco Pajore 2007
Wine Advocate 95 points - The Pajore is the most complete of these 2007 Barbareschi. Sweet baking spices, menthol, minerals and new leather lead to a powerful core of dark fruit. This is a massive, powerful Pajore endowed with tons of fruit and the commensurate tannic structure that will allow it to age gracefully for many years. As is often the case, I am drawn in by the sepia-toned, balsamic nuances that are layered so beautifully into the wine’s fabric. This is an utterly beguiling, large-scaled Barbaresco that will require patience. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. (Dec 2010)

The vineyard is located in Treiso, between Barbaresco and Alba, a few miles away from our other crus. The main characteristic of this wine is the velvety and elegant tannins combined with a spicy and floral aroma.
Producer
By telling the story of this land and how the first bottle of Spadafora was produced - imagining that this is not a site but a book - I have already given you an idea of the philosophy with which we take care of our vines and wine production every day. For me it is essential that we only use grapes we have grown ourselves, but I know this is nothing exceptional, since many already doing the same. An equally determining factor is where the grapes are grown, but I understand that also this makes no difference, since there are many other places suitable for growing grapes. What I find strange is that we have succeeded, we alone, to produce something people like, and this is why I consider Virzi a special place. Let me give you an example: If I produced grapes in Burgundy, close to the best producer, in the best area of Burgundy, you would assume that my wine would be good; but in Virzi, where they produced wine that was sold in casks and then loaded onto trucks and where grapes were sold to cooperative wineries for forty years, we produced a wine in 1993 made with our own hands. And from then on, after each harvest or after each bottling, it seemed that I was witnessing a small miracle.
