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.
My Notes:

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.
