When you speak of traditionalists, Bruno Nada, carrying on for his father Fiorenzo, is making wines that challenge anybody’s in the Piedmont for excellence. This nebbiolo is sensational. Rich, bold, earthy, with the classic rose petal and cherry aromatics followed by smoke, spice, and loamy earth. Aged completely in large oak casks that serve to fill out the flavors rather than dominate the fruit. One taste and you would swear you are drinking Barbaresco, which essentially you are. All of Nada’s fruit for his Nebbiolo Langhe comes from his perfectly situated Barbaresco vineyards…Manzola and Rombone…that lend this wine unusual intensity and style. I have always loved Nada’s wines (his Dolcetto is another “taste it to believe it” wine like the Ascheri), and right now we are able to offer his nebbiolo to you at a rather nifty $4 off per bottle. There is not a better under-$20 Nebbiolo in our market!
