Ferrando Carema Etichetta Nera 2015

Ferrando Carema Etichetta Nera 2015

Availability: Out of stock


"The 2015 Carema Etichetta Nera is absolutely stellar. In many vintages, I prefer the Etichetta Bianca, but in 2015, the Etichetta Nera (Black Label) has an extra kick of freshness and body, while the oak is as well-balanced as I have ever seen in this bottling. All of that adds up to a Carema that is positively dazzling from the very first taste. Dark cherry, plum, spice, leather, menthol and licorice develop in the glass, but it is the wine's vertical energy and overall balance that leave the longest impression. This is a positively dazzling wine in every sense. Drinking window: 2022-2040. 96 points

Ferrando is the most famous estate in the tiny Carema appellation. The flagship Etichetta Bianca (white label) and Etichetta Nera (black label) Caremas are some of the most intriguing wines in all of Italy. Generally, the white label is the more delicate of the two, while the black label is more powerful. In 2015, both wines will vie for your attention. I also found so much to like in the whites and the entry-level Rosso Terrazza."
