Carema: a truly moving vertical

For the Italian version of this post, click here.

A truly moving vertical of the least Piedmontese of the Piedmontese wines, Carema DOC, produced in a territory governed by Piedmont but belonging to the Valle d’Aosta and to the heroic winemakers who grow grapes in this mountainous terrain.

Recent vintages tasted at the Cantina dei Produttori Nebbiolo di Carema, founded in 1960 and now 50 years old: 2006, 2005, 2003, and 2000, as well as a few older vintages, like the basic “black label” riserva, not to mention the “white label” riserva, like the 1990 and the miraculous 1985.

A truly moving tasting, held in the winery’s cellar on October 18, yet another example of the wonders that Nebbiolo can deliver, even in this mountainous terroir, where identity tends to be a bit blurred.

And for the patient among you who would like to cellar these bottlings of 100% Nebbiolo grown in the terraced vineyards of these precipitous, rocky cliffs, you will find more-than-honest prices: Euro 7.50 for the 2006 basic “black label” and Euro 8.90 for the 2006 riserva “white label” (which will hit the market in mid-November).
