There is elegance to this Barbaresco alongside the rather sturdy tannins that frame the spice-driven fruit at the center of this wine’s profile. A classic wine of the appellation with woodsy notes, spry acidity and excellent lift on the palate."
The Nada family acquired this property in the heart of Barbaresco in 1919. Through generations they have dedicated themselves to producing wines of exceptional quality and character. The hillside vineyards, each with their own distinctive micro climates, are designated by name while the gentle downslope is home to an exceptional Dolcetto. Annalisa and her husband Elvio are carrying on a family tradition of great wines following the untimely passing of Gian Carlo Nada in 2012.
