Carlo Nada bought the Rombone farm, located in the Treiso commune of Piedmont, in 1921. He immediately planted vines and began to produce wine. Only one of his seven children, Fiorenzo, caught Carlo’s passion for wine. Initially, Fiorenzo discontinued his father’s winemaking business, focusing instead on selling grapes to local merchants. Fiorenzo’s son Bruno convinced his father to return to the winemaking business, and in 1982 they launched Azienda Agricola Nada Fiorenzo. Fourth-genera- tion Danilo Nada was born into a thriving winegrowing business. Today, 80-something Fiorenzo is still involved in working the vineyards. Bruno is head winemaker, while Danilo is learning the business alongside his father and grandfather.
The “Seifile” is at once silky and rich, well-balanced and structured for aging. Acidity is bright and expressive. Flavors of dark fruit and tar mark its provenance from the Treiso commune in Barbaresco territory.
