This wine, named for one of the daughters of Anna Lisa and Elvio, is drawn from the oldest vines located in the "cru" Rombone in Treiso. Planted in 1947, this plot of Nebbiolo is found on south facing slopes at 300 or so meters of altitude with low yields and high levels of concentration. Vinified in similar fashion to its brethren with a maceration of 10 or so days in stainless steel where it rests until both fermentations are complete; then, the wine is drawn off into large 30 hectoliter oak casks for 18 to 20 months of elevage. The wine is bottled without fining or filtration and remains in bottle for an additional 6 to 8 months before being offered to the public. This cuvée has the lift of the Valeirano but with more body and density with profound tannins well enrobed. A particularly age-worthy example of a traditionally structured Barbaresco that bears scant resemblance to the more modern, easier style of many wines of the Langhe today. Production is limited to about 4000 bottles per year.Carlo Nada established this family-run domaine in 1919 in the zone of Rombone, a highly regarded site within the boundaries of the Barbaresco appellation. Succeeding generations maintain the continuous presence and mark of the Nada family from Giovanni Nada, son of Carlo, to Gian Carlo Nada, the grandson of Carlo, and his wife, Ada. Anna Lisa Nada and her husband, Elvio Cazzaro, parents of three daughters (Emma, Elisa, Serena) have been responsible for the affairs of the estate since 2001.The estate has expanded from its original three hectare holdings to a total of nine hectares of vineyards, all within the confines of Treiso and principally within the two "cru" of Valeirano and Rombone. The average age of the vines is forty years, all harvesting is done by hand, and annual production reaches 45,000 bottles with half of that in the appellation of Barbaresco. The hallmark of the Ada Nada production is a long-standing commitment to the most noble traditions of the Langhe, a dedication to producing wines of character, firmly structured, rigorous and restrained, fearless.
