Luigi Ferrando Carema Etichetta Bianca, Piemonte Italy 2014
Family winemaking history goes back to 1900 and Luigi is the leading producer in this remote area of Piedmont (home of Barolo and Barbaresco!). When the Ferrando wines were first imported, Carema was unknown most anyone who lived outside of Torino. The wines are compelling proof of the region's soulful, ethereal quality. This white label is the defining bottle of the family, a most mystical expression of Nebbiolo at its purest and best. Brilliant and twinkling in the glass, this is a wine that unfolds infinitely and gives generously, but not hastily.
