2015 Sottimano Barbaresco Curra

2015 Sottimano Barbaresco Curra


Here”s Antonio Galloni”s review:

“Firm tannins provide the backbone for the 2010 Barbaresco Currà. A wonderfully layered, rich wine, the 2010 impresses for its resonance, beauty and class. Nothing in particular stands out, the 2010 is a wine of total harmony and symmetry. The Currà is quite floral, high-toned and spiced, not unlike the Fausoni, but with a little more mid-palate pliancy. At the same time, the tannins remain a bit firm, so a measure of patience is required.” 95 points

Tanzer’s review:

“(from 40-to-50-year-old vines on limestone soil in Neive; vinified with 15% whole clusters): Medium red. A basket of musky red fruits on the nose, along with a whiff of leather. Pungent saline limestone minerality adds punch to the wine’s concentrated red fruit flavors. Juicy acidity and an impression of medicinal reserve keep the middle palate under wraps today. The slowly building whiplash of a finish features a major dusting of tannins and a smoky nuance. A great showing, but forget about this one for at least five or six years.” 94+ points

“The decision to release the 2015 Barbaresco Currà two years later than the other wines has paid off handsomely, as the incisive young Currà tannins have now had time to start to soften, which in turn gives the wine tremendous openness that is on display today. Blood orange, pomegranate, sweet red cherry, star anise and cinnamon imbue the 2015 with an alluring sense of exoticism that is impossible to miss. Bright and lifted, the 2015 is just starting to develop the first signs of aromatic nuance. It will drink well for many years to come.” 95 Antonio Galloni
