95pts Antonio Galloni's Vinous

This Carema Riserva is ready to drink now, Mr. Galloni calls it a "total knockout, breathtaking wine", and it's under $30.00/bottle. Our supplier says it's their company's best kept secret. Need we go on?

Antonio Galloni's Vinous:  "The 2015 Carema Riserva is dark, powerful (for Carema) and also wonderfully appealing. Dried cherry, tobacco, smoke, licorice and dried herbs infuse the 2015 with tons of aromatic and flavor nuance. The 2015 also has quite a bit of mid-palate density and the persistence to drink well with just about anything. I find it incredibly appealing, and, frankly, a total knockout, breathtaking wine. Drink 2020-2035." Apr 2020

Winery:  "Garnet with tinges of orange. To the nose, slight notes of fruit in alcohol and dry flowers, extensive notes of sweet spices, cinnamon, liquorish roots and cocoa aroma. Very soft in the mouth, complete and well balanced with sweet tannins. It is a particularly good match with roast meat, game, red meat, ripe but not strong cheeses, or drunk as “fireside wine”. Very appropriate at the end of a meal, together with dried fruit."

Supplier Note: “Arguably the best kept secret in our book (maybe not anymore) - this just got a huge score from Galloni. This is ultra low production, and we are limiting this to one case per account.“

Trade Notes: "The palate is soft and layered with flavors of dark cherries and hints of ground coffee, chestnut, and cocoa, along with bright acidity, strong structure, soft persistent tannins, and a long finish."
