"Graphite, eucalyptus, rose and wild berry aromas shape the alluring nose. The full-bodied, rather austere palate mirrors the nose, offering dried cherry, blood orange, crushed herb and star anise alongside notes suggesting flinty mineral. Tightly knit, close-grained tannins provide support and lead to a firm finish. Drink 2022–2027."

"The Nada Giuseppe 2015 Barbaresco Riserva Casot shows an extra year of cellar age and comes from a vintage that was very bright and fruit forward to begin with. This is a silky and polished wine with a steady delivery of classic aromas of wild berry, forest floor, crushed stone and crushed aniseed. The texture is soft and pliant, wrapping around the palate with medium consistency. This Riserva is open and accessible, drinking beautifully straight out of the gate, ideally with a pheasant or other game fowl. A mere 1,900 bottles were made."

"Giuseppe Nada's vineyards are in the village of Treiso. The nose of Casot is rich but reserved, with reticent cherry aromas. It's full-bodied, concentrated and juicy in the mouth, displaying admirable weight and flesh. Structured and spicy, this has vigour and persistence. The wine is aged in casks of various sizes. Drinking Window 2020 - 2032"
