Barolo 'Arborina' Nadia Curto 2019

Barolo 'Arborina' Nadia Curto 2019

Nadia Curto

Nadia Curto's Barolo 'Arborina' is an elegant Piedmontese wine, produced with great skill by the Curto winery in the heart of the Langhe. Careful, modern winemaking, with spontaneous fermentation, very short maceration and aging in small barrels, results in an intense, ethereal Barolo, which impresses the nose with a floral and slightly spicy bouquet, and envelops the palate with a warm, full sip. Ideal to drink immediately, young, fresh and dynamic, or to leave in the cellar a few years, to discover, with time, its incredible evolutionary potential

Nadia Curto gives voice to the highly vocated terroir of Arborina through this Barolo with its modern and carefully crafted vinification, in which the intense extraction counterbalances the natural mineral elegance expressed by the soil.
Nadia Curto makes her Barolo 'Arborina' with Nebbiolo grapes from the additional geographical mention of the same name, located in the commune of La Morra. The vineyard boasts a southern exposure and reaches altitudes between 270 and 300 metres above sea level, with a rather steep slope, while the good drainage capacity is reflected in the natural concentration of substances in the fruit. The roots sink into a calcareous soil composed of the peculiar marls of Sant'Agata Fossili. The varietal's characteristic late ripening normally pushes harvesting into the month of October, although the continuous environmental warming now tends to bring operations forward to the month of September. Harvesting is carried out by hand in small crates, with yields around 60 quintals per hectare, and the bunches are destemmed and crushed, starting fermentation through a pied de cuve created with the work of indigenous yeasts only: the rotomacerator used keeps the mass in continuous movement and thus obtains a very intense extraction, controlling the temperature within 32 °C. After 5 days of maceration on the skins, the wine is racked into steel vats, where malolactic fermentation takes place. It is then racked into oak barriques and left to age for 24 months. Barolo 'Arborina' is bottled without clarification or filtration and is released from the cellar after a further 12 months of resting in glass.
Nadia Curto's Barolo "Arborina" reveals itself in lively garnet-coloured tones, directed towards orange nuances. The nose offers great intensity and complexity introduced by characteristic notes of rose. Fruity hints then open up to a spicy and balsamic world, in which hints of hay and cocoa, mushroomy hints of truffle and an ethereal closure appear. The taste is warm and austere, yet composed in an elegant velvet, finely supported by a freshness of great balance

Warm, full and enveloping sip of great elegance and balance


Wide and intense bouquet in which notes of ripe red fruits and rose petals stand out, accompanied by light balsamic nuances and deep spicy hints on the finish
