Ferrando Carema Etichetta Nera 2017


In Stock

“The 2017 Carema Etichetta Nera is laced with wild cherry, spice, leather, cedar and dried herbs. A wine of amplitude and power, the 2017 has a lot to offer. I would cellar it for a few years to allow some of the formidable tannins to soften. Over the last few years, the oak impact has come down in this bottling, which is certainly a positive development. Drinking window: 2025-2037. 93 points

Ferrando has long been the leading producer in the tiny appellation of Carema. The Etichetta Bianca and Etichetta Nera are reference-points. This year, though, I was especially taken by the Rosso Torazza, a wine that delivers tremendous quality and value.”
