Carema Classico, Produttori di Carema - 2019

Item # 14607 750mL

Carema is a wine valued for its perfume and elegance, but it has the structure and acidity to age for decades. This shows the aromatic fireworks that only Nebbiolo grown in this unique terroir can have: the floral, smoky, chocolatey nose is followed by delicate fruit and orange rind on the palate.

Several other Piedmontese grapes make striking and delicious wines: Pelaverga produces light-colored reds with distinctive notes of strawberry, cherry, and pink peppercorn.
