Nada Fiorenzo Dolcetto d'Alba 2017Regular price $20.00 Save $-20.00
The Wine Advocate talks about Nada Florenzo as “one of those iconic, ‘legacy’ wineries in Barbaresco that has won too many Gambero Rosso Three Glass awards and scored 90+ in Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator too many times to count.” I think this is pretty spectacular as the estate’s vineyard holdings are not very large and only a little wine is produced. The family is based in the commune of Treiso and was founded in the 1960’s. Nada Florenzo first got serious recognition in 1987 when Slow Wine took notice of the quality that was produced. This Dolcetto is coming from a single Cru named “Rombone,” which is famous locally. This special vineyard is truly the heart of the estate, serving as the site for the winery, the family house and their personal cellar.
MOODY NEBBIOLORegular price $240.00 Save $-240.00
4 BOTTLES FOR $220
Nebbiolo is one of the red varieties that’s distinctively cooler weather. It’s best friend, the truffle, comes out to play during the fall & winter, so these two are definitely having more fun this time of year than any other pairing. Many of us love Nebbiolo, but deciphering which wines are made from this variety is difficult, so we’ve chosen some here. Aromatic like Red Burgundy and structured like Cabernet Sauvignon, these wines are natural food pairings. Think truffles, woodsy mushrooms, Osso Bucco and other roasted meats, and pizza! We even like them with fuller-flavored cheeses that have a distinct creaminess.

Nada Fiorenzo, "Seifile" Langhe Rosso 2016Regular price $80.00 Save $-80.00
Variety: Barbera and Nebbiolo
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.
Nada Fiorenzo, Barbaresco "Montaribaldi" 2016Regular price $80.00 Save $-80.00
Bruno Nada is the son of a vine-grower who, typical of his generation, initially had little interest in farming and left home to study, first in Turin, then in Asti and eventually wound up as a teacher in the Hotel Institute of Barolo. While his interest in farming may not have been extraordinary, his interest in wine was, and he constantly took courses and read books in an attempt to further his knowledge in the field. The more he studied, the more he developed a passion for his home, the Cascina Rombone, near Treiso in the southern reaches of the Barbaresco region.
