Curto Barolo (bah-ROH-loh)
Italy ABV: 14%
Nadia Curto is a woman amongst men; a formidable winemaker who learned her craft from her father Marco, a grower, and her uncle Elio Altare, a legendary winemaker. She is her own enologist, and works every aspect of the winemaking. Her wines cut the razor’s edge between classic and modern in Barolo -- powerful, even a touch austere, but with undeniable finesse. The wine is elegant and approachable; and the fruits are lush, ripe and enormously concentrated, with beautifully balanced acids, tannins and fruits of dark cherry, truffles, earth and even roses and tar.
