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. WINEMAKER BIOGRAPHY 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.
