Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
Beautiful bouquet of liquorice, red berry fruits, cinnamon, cloves, strawberry, violet and cherry jam. The wine is full and enveloping with an aftertaste of ripe fruit and elegant structure. Made in particularly good or excellent years only. As in the past, the Barbaresco wines made from the Cottà cru are among the finest in the whole of Neive.

Winemaker Notes
Split in two by the road that descends from Borgata Masseria towards Tetti, the Cottà area is undoubtedly one of the best known in Neive and also one of the first to have been vinified as a single vineyard. The slope overlooking Barbaresco, in particular, is gently rolling and – with the exception of the vineyards next to the municipal border – it enjoys excellent exposure. As in the past, the resulting wines are among the finest in the whole municipality of Neive, without ever suffering from the presence of excessively dense or vigorous tannins.
Food & Wine Pairing
Pairing: structured red meats, mature cheeses, game, dishes featuring truffle and... dark chocolate. Serving temperature: 18-20° C
More Information
The estate was established in 1920 by Giovanni Mainerdo, who, fueled by a great passion for wine, began vinifying small batches of grapes from certain areas of particular prestige in different municipalities in Neive, Barbaresco and Serralunga d'Alba.
