Cantina dei Produttori Carema

Riserva Carema Nebbiolo 2016

From a lesser known “produttori” in Piemonte. Cantina Produttori Nebbiolo di Carema (what a mouthful) is a tiny cooperative in, you guessed it, Carema.

Popped and poured; enjoyed over the course of two days. Fairly consistent throughout but I think I preferred the energy on Day 1. The 2016 Riserva pours a pale garnet with a transparent core; medium+ viscosity and no staining of the tears. On the nose, the wine is developing with notes of pomegranate, slightly bruised strawberry, toe jam (yeah, well…I’m not wrong), alpine herbs, roses some balsamico and rocky earth. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ tannins and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is long and saline with a silky texture. Until now, my only experience with the Carema DOC has been with Ferrando’s Etichetta Bianca and Etichetta Nera. While this bottle didn’t have the same drama as those wines from Ferrando, this was a very good example of Carema. Drink now and through 2031.

Cantine dei Marchesi di Incisa della Rocchetta

Grignolino d'Asti 2019

Pale garnet in color; cherries, strawberries, and dried leaves on the nose; high acidity; medium minus tannins; tastes like pomegranates, dried flowers, and crushed gravel with a long finish. Nellie doesn't Iike it, but really like this wine. It reminds me of Pinot Noir. Light fruity and earthy. — 7 days ago
