Ferrando Carema Etichetta Bianca 2016

  • v94


Available for:
Category Red Wine
Origin Italy, Piedmont, Carema
Brand Ferrando

Farming is Lutte Raisonnee

The vines are trained in a special way on pergola (known as “tupin” in local dialect) to obtain maximum exposure to the sun in this high altitude district and are planted to soils that are dominated by slate.

The wine spends two weeks in stainless steel before being racked into a mixture of large and small barrels for an extensive aging period of 30 to 36 months before being bottled (without filtration). By law, the Carema cannot be released before four years of aging. 

Pale ruby, relatively youthful color for Nebbiolo; aromatic, wild strawberry, alpine red fruits, floral, exceptionally elegant; palate is light bodied, high acid, tannins exceptionally approachable young. This wine will age gracefully for two decades or more.

The 2016 Carema Etichetta Bianca is such a delight. What a wine. The 2016 has it all - aromatic presence, sculpted fruit and fabulous persistence. There is a bit of development in the flavors and yet the 2016 remains wonderfully fresh. Crushed raspberry, mint, white pepper, crushed rocks and dried herbs build into the taut, saline finish.
