Great care yields great results, and the ten-hectare estate of Nadia Verrua is no exception. Organically grown grapes are nestled alongside hazelnut trees here, and the quality of the sandy soils here are testament that winemaking starts in the vineyard. Nadia's wines are inviting, approachable, and charming. Sessantotto is a plush little blend of equal parts barbera and ruché, with a generous fruit profile of black fruits and spice, and a far cry from the bitter, tannic wines often seen from these sometimes aggressive varietals. As always, Nadia's wine have a lovely energy that mingles about the palate.
