Sottimano Barbaresco Curra 2013
VM96: "The highlight of the 2013s, the Barbaresco Currà is simply exceptional. Powerful and explosive, with striking aromatics, pulsating fruit and tons of pure energy, the Currà makes a strong case for itself as one of the finest wines ever made here. A host of sweet red cherry, kirsch, mint, raspberry and cedar meld into the long, persistent finish." Sottimano is a family-owned estate with five vineyards in Trieso and Neive. Andrea Sottimano and his father Rino are among Barbaresco’s top producers. The Currà vineyard is in the town of Neive and produces wines with rich tannins and fruity, charming elegance. This is 100% Nebbiolo from 55 to 75-year-old vines. Powerful and explosive, with sweet red cherry, mint, raspberry, and cedar."
