Tasting Notes

Dark and savory aromas of smoked meat, blackberry jam, and dried flowers. The palate comes a surprise with a much tarter impression, with a very fresh and zippy mouthfeel, flavors of blackberry and pomegranate juice, with subtle meat and bay leaf.


Giuseppe Nada is a small family-run estate in the village of Treiso in Barbaresco. The Nada holdings in the two constitute six hectares (almost 15 acres), which is the totality of vines owned by this industrious family. These days, Giuseppe and Nella stay fit maintaining the vineyards where they do practically all of the work, while their daughter Barbara manages the office and their enologist son Enrico oversees the wine production down in the cellar. Once their son Enrico came on board, his keen intelligence and passionate direction allowed the family to go organic in the vineyards in 2014. They received initial certification in 2017, while the white vineyards will be certified in 2018 and 2019. Enrico “officially” became cellar master in 2008 upon graduating from enology school. He quickly eliminated SO2 additions during fermentation, maceration and malolactic, and reduced the additions used during aging. He moved to employing only one minimal filtration at bottling for the reds. In the vineyard he convinced his father to go organic, and he began to plant white varieties. The red parcels received certification in 2017; the white parcels will be certified in 2018 and 2019.
