And the Riserva, from the even better balanced 2016 vintage, promises to be a plain ridiculous value proposition, capturing the essence of Carema’s nobility/character at a fraction of the prices (like 1/3) of the Ferrando White Label Riserva. Lovers of Nebbiolo and singular noble red wines of the world, what else can you ask for?…….
“The 2015 Carema Riserva is dark, powerful (for Carema) and also wonderfully appealing. Dried cherry, tobacco, smoke, licorice and dried herbs infuse the 2015 with tons of aromatic and flavor nuance. The 2015 also has quite a bit of mid-palate density and the persistence to drink well with just about anything. I find it incredibly appealing, and, frankly, a total knockout, breathtaking wine.” 95 Antonio Galloni for the 2015, NOT THE 2016 OFFERED HERE.
