The vineyard

The Currà vineyard is situated in the part of the municipality of Neive that borders with Barbaresco. The great class and finesse that characterise this wine are typical of this hillside, while fatness and richness are conveyed by the soils of the municipality of Barbaresco. To soften its austerity, we prefer to age this wine in the bottle for a longer time in the winery, delaying its release by two years.

The vinification

Meticulous selection of the best grapes in the vineyards and in the cellar is followed by spontaneous alcoholic fermentation using indigenous yeasts. After long maceration on skins (traditionally two months with submerged cap), the wine is racked into French barriques and large barrels where it completes malolactic fermentation. Neither filtration nor fining takes place at the time of bottling. A further year’s rest in the bottle allows the wine to fulfil its full expressive potential.
