Its olfactory expression is characterized by balsamic herbs, minerality and spices. The palate offers a hint of wild fruit, together with an intense fruity texture, characterized in particular by cherry and strawberry. Long and velvety tannins accompany a spicy note, typical of this particular area of the municipality of Neive, facing the municipality of Treiso.

Antonio Galloni writes: The 2018 Barbaresco Basarin is a very pretty, classy wine. Dark red cherry, pomegranate, flowers and licorice notes are all nicely lifted. An elegant, supple wine, the Basarin will drink well with minimal cellaring. The purity of the fruit is striking. Readers will find a wine of total elegance and class. This is a stellar showing. - Vinous 94

"Balsamic aromas of camphor mingle with earthy whiffs of forest floor, new leather, cedar and wild berries on this elegant, full-bodied red. The tight, linear palate is delicious and loaded with personality, delivering ripe Morello cherry, mocha, licorice and an earthy note of truffle framed in firm, fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it well-balanced. Drink 2026–2038." - Wine Enthusiast 95 Points

"The Sottimano 2018 Barbaresco Basarin shows tart cherry fruit and plum backed by lovely layers of crushed mineral, iron ore, spice and crushed flowers. The wine reveals an inner brightness or tartness that tastes terrific next the more nuanced character of the Nebbiolo grape. Basarin shows power and elegance in equal measure, and that is never an easy feat for any winemaker to accomplish." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 95 Points
