The 2005 Barbaresco Curra is drop dead gorgeous. Like the Fausoni, it offers a profile of ripe red fruit, menthol, flowers and spices, but there is greater detail, clarity and precision here. With air suggestions of leather, tobacco and licorice develop, adding further complexity. The tannins build on the finish, suggesting the wine is in need of further cellaring. The use of French oak is masterful. Simply put, this is an outstanding effort. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025. 

Sottimano is one of the leading producers in Barbaresco. Readers should check out Issue 178 for value-priced wines from this estate, which has been on a roll for a few years. Simply put, there are few, if any, growers in Barbaresco that offer this level of consistency throughout their entire range. Sottimano’s 2005 Barbarescos have always shown superb balance. They are on average slightly fresher than the 2004s, with a touch less concentration, something that is very much in keeping with the qualities of the vintage.
