92(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2011

(from clay and limestone soil; the Fausoni soil has more sand; all of Sottimano's Barbarescos are aged entirely in barriques, about 15% to 20% new):  Bright amber-edged medium red.  Flinty minerality, a hint of underbrush and a sexy carnal quality on the nose.  Tighter and higher-pitched than the sweeter Fausoni, with firm acidity accentuating the impression of spine today.  More limestone energy here.  The strong tannins are supported by the wine's powerful material, coating the front teeth without coming off as dry.  From very old vines and small bunches.
