2004 Sottimano Barbaresco Cottá

2004 Sottimano Barbaresco Cottá. I followed this over the course of three nights, as well, and I am not entirely sure what to make of it. For a wine of this age, it was shockingly primary. And I expected something silky and tertiary, yet what came out of the bottle was riper and brawnier than I was expecting. The good news that despite the ripeness, there was a fantastic menthol/eucalyptus note on the palate that really made this. Oh and what you see in front of the bottle are reverse-seared lamb t-bone steaks that were outrageous.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
