It was great to see so many of you turn out for the great tasting we had this past Saturday! Our friends at Chambers St. Wines really know how to put on a tasting and we all pulled out all the stops pouring an amazing line-up of wines from the great Nebbiolo grape.

We began with a fine 2004 Ferrando Carema from the northern reaches of Piedmont. Ferrando is the star of the zone and while this white label bottling is his entry-level wine I prefer it to the more expensive, as well as more heavily oaked and extracted black label. This had lovely floral tones, crisp red fruits and elegant structure. A great way to ease into Nebbiolo.
