About the wine

From Alto-Piemonte in Northern Piedmont, nestled in the foothills of the Alps, comes this beautiful, ethereal Nebbiolo. Complex and elegant nose of small, wild red fruits, forest undergrowth, crushed stones and hints of cinnamon. Weightless palate, light to medium body, refined with lively acidity, noble tannins and a long spicy finish.

For many years Alto-Piemonte wines have taken a back seat to their more powerful cousins (Barolo and Barbaresco) produced further south in the Langhe. More recently, though, the numerous appellations situated around the Sesia river are receiving the recognition they deserve for distinctive, terroir-driven wines of great quality and undisputable value. Produttori del Carema does just that.

About the wine

This is a very small cooperative, made up of just 12 growers, crafting beautiful expressions of Nebbiolo! The wine is fermented in stainless steel vats with a maceration period of 12 days. And then transferred into big wooden casks for 12 months of refinement and for further 6 months in bottles.
