Review:
The 2014 Barbaresco Currà is the most tannic and linear of these wines. Orange peel, mint, white pepper, sweet red cherry and cranberry are all beautifully delineated in the glass. Vibrant, poised and energetic, the 2014 possesses tons of elegance and pure class. I loved it. The Currà is often slow out of the gate, but it is impressive, even in the early going.
