Notes from Ferrando:

"The Ferrando family has produced and traded wine for five generations.

Ferrando Vini was founded in 1890 by Giuseppe Ferrando, who moved to Ivrea from Acqui to introduce the wines of Piedmont into the neighbouring region of Valle d’Aosta. Giuseppe’s son Luigi then expanded and developed the winemaking business.

In 1957, Giuseppe Ferrando junior, the founder’s grandson, began production of one of the rarest wines obtained from the Nebbiolo variety: Carema, named after a small town in northern Piedmont, on the border with Valle d’Aosta. Here, in 1964, the Ferrando family built cellars for the production and ageing of this unique “mountain Barolo” (D.O.C. since 1967).

In the early Eighties, Giuseppe’s son Luigi took over the company, which is currently owned by his son Roberto. The company’s creativity and inventiveness have been faithfully passed on through the generations, along with a steady commitment to quality.

Vintage notes: Intense garnet red, limpid and dense. Spicy, fruity notes. Fine hints of dried flowers and rose petals. Warm, tannic mouthfeel. Well-integrated spicy notes."
