HALF DOZEN Produttori di Carema 'Carema Riserva' DOC 2017 New Arrival Offer
This product is currently sold out.
The Riserva is a selection of the best Classico barrels that are then aged a further year in cask. What a wine - definitive Nebbiolo/Picotener. So much energy, detail and purity with a finish to die for.
Please note 2017's are yet to be reviewed but are a bit fuller fruited than the 2016's
"The 2016 Carema Riserva is another knock-out effort from the Produttori di Carema, the local cooperative that has really been on fire these last few vintages. Open-knit and inviting, but with all the complexity that is so typical of the appellation, the 2016 is superb. Crushed flowers, mint, sweet tobacco, cedar and licorice are all woven together in a super-expressive Carema that offers tons of complexity in a relatively accessible style for a young wine from the appellation. The Riserva is a selection of the best casks in the cellar, with the wine aged for an added year in cask, so three years’ in neutral oak in total. That extra year in oak vis-à-vis the Classico does take with it some of the fruit while emphasizing more savory and mineral qualities. Power and finesse come together so well in this textbook Carema." 96 points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous
