The first of Andrea’s single parcel crus, the Fausoni, hails from a sandy soiled vineyard, which always gives it an open knit, generous, and accessible character. It is a wine of inviting finesse, I would say….he has only continued to hone in on this quiet intensity for the Fausoni in my tenure working with his wines, to a striking degree in recent years, as the most recent review from Galloni attests to…
“The 2016 Barbaresco Fausoni is another superb wine in this lineup of 2016 Barbarescos from the Sottimano family. Bright floral and citrus overtones give the 2016 a vibrant, chiseled feel. Sweet red/purplish berry fruit, blood orange, spice, menthol rose petal and lavender are some of the many notes that flesh out in this super-expressive, mid-weight Barbaresco from Sottimano. Aromatically lifted, dense on the palate and also very structured, the 2016 is a very complete Fausoni. The 2016 finishes with tremendous persistence and a classic sense of austerity that is compelling.” 95 Antonio Galloni for the 2016, NOT THE 2018 OFFERED HERE.
