The 2018 Carema is a terrific introduction to these wines. Bright and airy in feel, the 2018 is laced with the essence of sweet candied cherry, game, licorice, tobacco, dried flowers and incense. In a nutshell, this is what Carema is all about. The 2018 is just a bit rustic and gamy, but it makes up for that with its personality and overall expression of the appellation.
Vinous Reverie Notes
Carema's Nebbiolo made in a tiny sub-appellation in Piedmont, right on the Valle d’Aosta border.
The wine is made by the ultra-formidable Roberto Contero of Giacomo Conterno fame, who makes this wine because he absolutely loves Carema and loves being a part of its journey.
It just so happens that the 2018 Carema that Roberto makes happens to be one of his all-time best bottlings. Antonio Galloni absolutely loved it, calling it a “terrific introduction to these wines” as well as declaring, “in a nutshell this is what Carema is all about”.
