Curto – LaFoia 2015 – Barolo

The nose is elegant, gourmand, beautifully built and offers complexity as well as power. It reveals notes of wild strawberry and small notes of small berries associated with small touches of fine vanilla flowers, liquorice stick, blueberry, discreet hints of spices as well as a very discreet hint of copse and mocha and an imperceptible hint laurel berries/flowers (in the background). The palate is fruity, gourmande, beautifully defined and offers a beautiful juiciness, a beautiful elegance, delicacy, power, an acidulous frame, a fine tension, a fine suavity as well as a delicate/slightly tight grain (beautiful finesse of the grain). On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, blackberry and small notes of fleshy red berries associated with small touches of fleshy/juicy raspberry, small touches of wild black berries, discreet hints of laurel berries/copse, spices as well as very discreet hints of chocolate, mocha, tonka bean, tea and an imperceptible hint of crushed almond. Tannins are elegant, structuring and a bit young. Very beautiful persistence. Beautiful potential !
