Nada Fiorenzo from Piemonte
This winery breathes history with three generations of winemakers and goes back to the year 1921. The youngest member is Danilo Nada who decides to devote himself completely to life in the cellar at the end of his university studies. Together with his father Bruno, they uphold the traditions with respect for the environment.
Amazing Barbaresco wines
The Nada family produces about 45,000 bottles and cultivates 10 hectares of vineyards in the best crus of Treiso. Around the house are two adjoining but very different lots; Rombone and Manzola. The first purely calcareous clayey, giving wines of extraordinary complexity and long life. The second is calcareous, clayey with outcrops of sand layers, making it suitable for wines of great elegance. A few hundred meters from the cellar, the grapes are harvested in the Montaribaldi cru, where vines are planted many years ago on this steep and perfectly south-facing ridge. The soil, old and eroded over time, is calcareous with a small amount of clay.
In the basement, Bruno and Danilo have decided to vinify each plot separately to reinforce the different identities; fermentation and maceration are dictated by the natural cycle without forcing with traditional methods of pumping and punching. All vines have been organically grown for some time, although the certified conversion is underway at this point. Renowned wine critic Antonio Galloni calls Nada Fiorenzo's Barbaresco Manzola DOCG 2016 "a brilliant wine".
This small-scale producer makes amazing Barbaresco wines of extreme quality and are highly appreciated.
