Piemontese wines ala Curto family

The winery of Marco Curto is the traditional family-run winery, and has been handed down from father to son for three generations.

The winery consists of 4 hectares in the heart of the Barolo production area.
Marco Curto with his wife Adele and their daughter Nadia, cultivate the vineyards themselves, taking care of each step of the winemaking – from the cure of the plants to the manual harvest and to the cellar.

The family gives a lot of attention to the winemaking with great respect for tradition.

The production includes the typical wines of the area and the most renowned product is the Barolo Arborina docg (Arborina is the name of a restricted hilly area famous for the cru Barolos), with the name “La Foia” which means “leaf” in the Piedmont dialect.

Dolcetto d'Alba Gattera La Foia entirely produced in steel tank shows great expression and are some of the richest dolcettos around.

Barbera d'Alba La Foia aged for a few months in oak has great complexity and smoothness with long taste

Barolo La Foia, aged for two years in cask and for two years more in bottle, a good example of elegance.

Barolo Arborina La Foia, is an expression of a more complex and mature Barolo that is true to the Piedmonte winemaking

I’m honoured to have the opportunity to taste these fantastic wines and I an sure that we will see them in Sweden real soon on the market.

Thanks Nadia for providing me with some bottles
