Description: Only a handful of producers populate the tiny DOC of Carema in Piemonte and the Nebbiolo here offers a fresher, livelier expression of the grape. The wine is ruby red with garnet highlights while spicy notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and stewed fruit dominate on the nose. Lithe tannins and vibrant acidity provide ample structure. Spicy fruit notes carry through on the palate with a whiff of smoke on the finish. Very pretty vintage.
