Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

An intense garnet red color, translucent but dense. On the nose are pronounced spices and ripe red berries with fine notes of violet, berries and vanilla. The palate is enveloping with an alcoholic mouthfeel and pleasant developing tannins. Made only in the best vintages, Carema Etichetta Nera is well orchestrated with a firm structure and at its best a few years after bottling.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Carema Etichetta Nera is a little less aromatically complex than the Etichetta Bianca and more full-bodied through the mid-palate and finish. It boasts superb juiciness in its dark cherries, plums, sweet herbs and spices. The oak is exceptionally well-integrated in this vintage. I often prefer the Etichetta Bianca, but in 2007 both wines are striking for their beauty and sheer expressiveness. The round, caressing finish makes it nearly impossible to put the glass down. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2027."

Learn About Luigi Ferrando

Luigi Ferrando has long been the leading winemaker of the Canvese where his family's winemaking tradition goes back to 1900. Like many of Rosenthal's producers, he has strong ties to his local region. His attachment and commitment run deep, and have led him to collaborate with other winemakers and academics. They are responsible for discovering and preserving local winemaking traditions that might otherwise have been lost. His sons, Roberto and Andrea, now work with him on the estate, thereby assuring the continuation of the Ferrando tradition.

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
