Wine Spectator 91 points - Vivid structure and cherry notes underlie this red. Needs time for the firm tannins to release their grip. Taut and reticent now, leaving a mouthwatering impression. Best from 2017 through 2027.B.S. (Sep 3 2014)
At the Nada Fiorenza estate located in Treiso, Bruno Nada produces two beautifully structured examples of Barbaresco as well as other Langhe reds that have been receiving notable critical acclaim for several years now. In 1982, Bruno began to bottle wine from grapes grown by his father, Fiorenza, which were sold as bulk wine. Not satisfied with the results he began associating with the great producers of Barbaresco from the early 1980s, such as Gaja, Bruno Giacosa and Pio Cesare. He learned about terroir, lower yields and the positioning of the vineyards. The first bottles of Dolcetto d’Alba and Babaresco were produced in 1987. Today, Nada Fiorenzo winery is considered one of the most respected in the commune of Treiso. The harvesting is made by hand. The vineyards cover about 17 acres all within the Rombone and Manzola crus in Barbaresco.
