Bruno Rocca Barbaresco Curra DOCG 2016
This extremely-hard-to-find Barbaresco is a gem that any Italian wine-lover would covet! A very very special wine, to be sure! Only 33 cases imported into the US.
95 pts. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The Bruno Rocca 2016 Barbaresco Curra sees fruit from Neive, a subzone that is often characterized by subtle power and structure of its wines. In this vintage, Curra shows balanced fruit intensity with delicate hints of toasted almond, iron rust and aniseed. There is depth and persistence for long cellar aging. What I like best about this wine is that it captures the essence of Barbaresco, a winemaking zone focused on Nebbiolo that often delivers a more open-knit and fragile interpretation when compared to neighboring Barolo. Curra is aged in small oak barrels for one year, with a second year in large oak casks, topped off with 10 months in bottle." - Monica Larner, July 2020
94 pts. James Suckling:
"Such beautiful, ripe fruit on the nose with strawberry and floral undertones. Medium-bodied with round, juicy tannins. Orange peel and hints of meat. Some walnut undertones. Drink after 2023."
