CAMERANO BAROLO 2004
From the Winery: The Camerano winery is located in the heart of the “Old Langa” region, within the village of Barolo. Founded in 1875, Camerano is the second oldest wine producer within the commune of Barolo. The family has been producing traditional, classic Piemontese wines for 5 generations on their estate-owned vineyards. Using time honored, ultra-traditional methods, handed down from one generation to the next, the Camerano family has remained out of the limelight producing and selling wines only locally, at their cellar door, and to private customers in Italy. With the 1995 vintage, the daughter Francesca took charge of marketing and son Vittorio stepped into the wine making position, and the family looked to begin exporting small quantities of their wine for the first time.
From extreme, low yield vines, the Camerano Barolos spend ten to fifteen days macerating and are aged in old 25, 30 and 50 hectolitre barrels. The Camerano Barolos are always “young” compared to the other Barolos of the same age, as their wines need time and patience to develop. On entering the cellars, tradition-conscious visitors are immediately struck by the oak casks, the equipment from days gone by, and the labels showing historic vintages of Camerano wines.
This wine spend ten to fifteen days maceratin. It is aged in old 25, 30, and 50 hectolitre barrels. Finished in oak and chestnut barrels. The Camerano ‘Gold Label’ is quintessential, classic Barolo with aromas and flavors of dark berries, licorice, forest floor characters, truffles, violets and exotic spices. It is expansive on the palate with great complexity, depth of flavor and fine, noble tannins. This was also rated 85 points by the Wine Enthusiast.
