Bruno Rocca Barbaresco ‘Curra’ Reserva 2012

Bruno Rocca Barbaresco ‘Curra’ Reserva 2012

Purchased in 2001, this vineyard represents our “promised land.” Its four hectares of vines give us a superior class of Barbaresco. It is incredibly refined and has great personality, characteristics that have led us to believe in it strongly since 2012.

Currà takes its name from the parish priest of Neive (curato in Italian and curà in Piedmontese); it is believed that in the past, the land was property of the Church who was always careful of its choice in income. Its position, terrain, and microclimate make a wine that is highly elegant with pleasant, harmonious tannins.

Grape: 100% Nebbiolo

Region: Curra, Barbaresco, Italy

Nose: The dark exuberance of the fruit and the soft textural richness of the mouthfeel.

Palate: Both 2012 and 2015 are warm vintages in the Barbaresco region. But this wine is further along its evolutionary track, and you can recognize those budding aromas of licorice, tar and campfire ash as a result.

Finish: The elegant finish offers smoky flavors and silky, integrated tannins.
