The grapes in the Nadia Curto Langhe Nebbiolo come from the Arborina vineyard! During fermentation Nadia proceeds with manual repassing and pressing. Nadia uses indigenous yeast. After a maceration of about 15 days, the wine is drawn off and after the malolactic fermentation the wine begins the refinement in wood for about a year. It is bottled in the summer months without clarification or filtration.
Nadia Curto Langhe Nebbiolo
2018 was a difficult vintage, with a lot of rain and a lot of mildew. The Curto Nebbiolo is light with soft tannins. Beautiful nose, just like what a a nebbiolo should smell, with aromas of roses, fruit and cherry.
2016 is considered one of the greatest vintages for Nebbiolo. Most people focus on Barolo, but I think the Nebbiolo’s should get a shoutout. The 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo from Nadia Curto is currently available in Norway!
2014 was one of the most difficult vintages this decade. It rained and rained and rained. The wines are therefore quite light. The 2014 Curto Nebbiolo is quite elegant, with aromas of red fruits and roses.
Modernist or Traditionalist?
Modernist or Traditionalist? If there is anyone I know that doesn’t “belong” in any boxes, it’s Nadia Curto. Her winemaking style is influenced by both her father and her uncle, and she applies the different methods to different wines. Does it matter what style you prefer, if your wines are good? I don’t think so.
