Offers a tightly woven fabric permeated by cherry, currant, eucalyptus and tobacco flavors. Though firm and dusty, the tannins are offset with enough fruit and density for balance. The finish is austere now, but this will find equilibrium in time.

The 2012 Barbaresco Currà is slightly shorter compared to the 2013 vintage, and this wine shows less depth as well. The approach is immediate and accessible. You don't need to wait too long in order to enjoy this classic Nebbiolo. It is attractive in the short term, thanks to the ripe and soft fruit quality. Only 2,000 bottles were made.

'I can’t say enough good things about the Sottimano family and the work they have done over the years to firmly establish themselves among Barbaresco’s top growers. This is one of the few places in Piedmont where every wine is consistently delicious. The only question is how delicious. In recent years, Andrea Sottimano has worked to give his Barbareschi extended time on the lees in a cold cellar, which also slows down the malos. This distinctly Burgundian approach stands in stark contrast to the way most French oak-aged wines are made in Piedmont, where malos typically follow right after the alcoholic fermentations.' Antonio Galloni, October 2012.
