Winemaker Notes

Ferrari-Carano presents its finest blend of the five classic Bordeaux varietals – Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc – from the best selections of our vineyards in Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys. Aptly named "Trésor" for "treasure," the grapes are hand harvested from dry-farmed, low-yielding vines primarily on our mountain vineyards. Delicious aromas of blueberry, blackberry and cassis combine with a vibrant mid-palate of roasted mocha and vanilla. With a full-bodied and impressive tannin profile, this wine's upfront silkiness and roundness make for a delicious selection now and will drink well for 15—20 years.

Upon entering the winery, the grapes are destemmed, hand sorted and then whole-berry fermented in tank before pressing. Individual lots are moved to barrels for malolactic fermentation, then blended and barrel aged in new and older French oak for 20 months, allowing for the perfect balance of fruit intensity, tannin suppleness and oak sweetness.
Our 2007 Trésor complements lamb, beef and duck dishes that are roasted or braised. Try Trésor with strong-flavored cheeses such as Gorgonzola and sharp Cheddar.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, the 2007 Tresor Proprietary Red is a deep, rich, full-bodied wine displaying notes of graphite, blueberries, blackberries, spice box, and background oak. It is a young, formidably endowed, moderately tannic effort that requires 2-3 years of bottle age. It should last 20-25 years.

Home to the world’s most powerful wines made from the Nebbiolo grape...

Home to the world’s most powerful wines made from the Nebbiolo grape, the Barolo village of Piedmont has long been known as “the wine of kings, the king of wines.” There are two predominant soil types here, which distinguish Barolo from neighboring Barbaresco as well as from the lesser surrounding areas. Compact and fertile Tortonian sandy marls define the vineyards to the west, typically resulting in fresher, fruitier, and softer wines that are approachable relatively early on in their evolution. This is sometimes referred to as the “feminine” side of Barolo and is closer in style to Barbaresco with its elegant perfume. On the eastern side of the region, Helvetian sandstone clay soils are chalkier and less fertile, producing age-worthy wines with full body and structured tannins—the more “masculine” style. The best Barolo wines need 10-15 years before they are ready to drink, and can further age for several decades.

Barolo is one of the world’s most distinctive red wines, and experienced tasters typically have no trouble picking it out of a lineup. In addition to Nebbiolo’s signature “tar and roses” aroma, one can expect to find complex notes of strawberries, cherries, leather, white truffles, anise, fresh and dried herbs, tobacco, violets, plum, and much more. Despite its deceptively light garnet color, Barolo has a full presence on the palate and plenty of tannin and acidity. The traditional style of Barolo relies on the use of neutral large wooden vats for aging, which do not impart flavor to the wine and preserve the natural character of the Nebbiolo grape. Meanwhile, a more modern, “international” style of Barolo utilizes small French oak barrels to add spicy, woody flavors and a softer texture resulting in earlier drinkability.

Responsible for some of the most cerebral and age-worthy wines in the world...

View More

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area as well as in neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it is at its best in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo and Barbaresco. Nebbiolo is a finicky grape, and needs a very particular soil type in order to thrive. Outside of Italy, it often fails to show the captivating aromas for which it is so beloved, but some success has been achieved in parts of California.

In the Glass

Nebbiolo is an elegant variety with mouthwatering acidity and a compelling perfume of rose petals, violets, fresh tar, licorice, clay, and dried cherries. Light in color and body, Nebbiolo is a more powerful wine than one might expect, and its firm tannins typically need time to mellow. With age, it develops a velvety texture and a stunningly complex bouquet.

Perfect Pairings

Nebbiolo’s love affair with food starts in Piedmont, which is home to the Slow Food movement and some of Italy’s best produce. The region is famous for its white truffles and wild boar ragu, both of which make for excellent pairings with Nebbiolo.

Sommelier Secret

If you love Barolo and Barbaresco but can’t afford to drink them every night, you can try the more wallet-friendly, earlier-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo. But Piedmont’s best-kept secret is the northern part of the region, where outstanding earthy and rustic versions of the variety (known here as “Spanna”) are produced in Ghemme and Gattinara.
