Critic Reviews:
'Enrico Nada is a rising young star making a range of impressive wines and a downright stunning Barbaresco from a steep, perfectly exposed Cru called Casot near Treiso. Tasted twice blind and then again at the winery (how could I not ask to see the people behind this?), this wine shows billowing aromas that interweave ripe fruit scents with a host of floral, earthy, meaty and leathery accents. Light-medium in body, explosive in flavor, and delicate in texture, this is traditionally made, with no overt oak but plenty of acidic and tannic structure to develop over time. However, it is among the most immediately enjoyable Barbarescos Iíve tasted during the past decade, edging out Nadaís 2009 Casot, which I rated 94 in a blind tasting in May of 2012. Enrico thinks the 2009 will eventually be the better of the two wines, and though Iím not initially inclined to agree, Iím damned sure going to re-run the test for as long as I can get my mitts on the wines. ' 96/100 Michael Franz (Wine Review Online)

'Giuseppe Nada and his son Enrico have produced an earthy and gripping Barbaresco, with floral, truffle aromas punctuated with Alpine herbs. The palate shows layers of dark cherry-berry fruit, balsamic notes of sage and mint, all backed up by a firmly tannic backbone. Best after 2016.' 92/100 Kerin OíKeefe (Wine Enthusiast)
