Did we need another Brachetto in the shop? Probably not, we have 4! That said, what kind of buyers would we be if we passed on our tiny allocation (only 10 cases made it to California this year!) of 2020 Maté from famed Barbaresco producer, Sottimano. Often made into an off-dry semi-sparkling red, Sottimano is one of a small handful of growers dedicated to making a still, dry version of this ethereal red varietal. Fresh as all get-out and intensely perfumed, there's enough rose and violets here to make Frederic Malle jealous. Get it while we've got it, it won't be around for long!
