Wine that comes from the Arborina vineyard, famous for its special characteristics. We are east of La Morra, south facing and the steep slope creates very pronounced rain drainage, a stressful condition for the vines that thus give clusters of extraordinary concentration.The vines grow on a complex soil of marl, limestone, clay and sand.

From here come elegant wines, which combine the concentration given by limestone and draining soils with extraordinary finesse. The Riserva is made only in the best vintages and with the selection of the best grapes. The 2016 has in the envelopment its main characteristic: it is warm, soft, with notes of ripe cherry and rose flowers, but also tertiary already expressive with notes of tobacco, leather and eucalyptus. 

The palate is rich and very deep and, although still evolving, begins to show the traits of maturity. A taut and textured wine at times silky for a sip that never tires.

From the producer

Nadia Curto

Nadia is a talented winemaker from La Morra in the middle of the Barolo production area. She cultivates and makes wine together with her father Marco 4 hectares of vineyards in the hamlet of l'Annunziata, a village of 250 souls that has 25 wineries! Nadia arrived at the winery in 1998 after dedicating herself to something else, but the passion became overwhelming so much so that since 2002 she decided to dedicate herself to the family business. 

The style of production is totally artisanal and natural: only natural manure is used in the field for the soil, zero pesticides or herbicides, and the main work is all manual. "Even in the winery we ferment with wild yeasts, we don't filter or clarify the wines and we don't add anything else to the grapes except a little sulfites."

Nadia produces: Dolcetto, Barbera, a stupendous Freisa and Nebbiolo as well as the two Barolos, the classic "La Foia" and the Cru "Arborina", destined in time to be more and more the object of desire for all natural Barolo enthusiasts.
