The longest aged and latest released Barbaresco is the Currà, a pet favorite of mine and then some. It has tremendous depth, complexity, and dazzling multi-dimensional sensory fireworks that are self-evidently class in a glass. For me, this is a wine that I cellar in every vintage…..the ’16 is a knockout classic vintage, of the finest that Andrea has made in his career…..
“The 2016 Barbaresco Currà is energetic and tense, but it also shows a bit more oak influence than the other Barbarescos in the range. That should not be a huge issue, as the Currà is always slow to mature. Floral and spiced notes bring added lift as this detailed, finely sculpted Barbaresco opens up. Constantly changing in the glass, the Currà captures all the mystique and intrigue that are such essential attributes of top-notch, fine Nebbiolo. I loved it.” 95+ Antonio Galloni
