Starting in 1940, what was once merely a local Osteria was transforming into a larger operation, including the production of local wines. Through the 1960’s Gaetano Caldirola began experimenting with native Piemontese varietals (Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Moscato to name a few). Through the ‘70’s, 80’s and ‘90’s Nando Caldirola oversaw the family’s efforts to modernize production and open up export markets. It is the family’s production of exciting yet affordable sparkling wines that has garnered our attention. Nua is the family’s most important sparkling wine brand, and one of the largest producers of Prosecco DOCG. Their range of sparkling wines includes various other spumante cuvees in addition to Prosecco, including Lambrusco and sparkling Erbaluce. The Nua Brut is a special bottling only for Ontario.
The Nua Brut is from one of Italy’s top Prosecco producers. Located in Milan, they have produced for us a special spumante to fit the price and style required. Although it is not 100% Glera (the Prosecco grape), we actually think it is a lot better as they have added Pinot Noir to our blend to give it more seriousness and some suggestive red fruit notes. This wine shows vibrant red apples, ripe citrus, honey and hazelnuts with a hint of toasty brioche. The bubbles are persistent and mouth filling and the wine finishes clean. A great bubbly at a fantastic price.
