La Foia Barolo DOCG
Nadia Curto is a formidable winemaker who learned her craft from her father, a
grower, and her uncle Elio Altare, a legendary producer. She’s her own enologist
and works every aspect of the winemaking. This cru Barolo cuts the razor’s edge
between classic and modern - powerful, even a touch austere, but with undeniable
finesse. The wine is at once elegant and approachable, with flavors that are lush
and enormously concentrated. Beautifully balanced layers of dark cherry, truffles,
anise, earth, and even rose hips.
To put it mildly, Nadia Curto is “all in”. Leading the charge for women winemakers
in Piedmont, Nadia took her enological smarts and expanded the family’s business
from grower to producer. Today, she channels all her expertise into tiers of cru
Barolo that are remarkably nuanced and possess a true feminine side.
