Antonio Galloni

AG 95
"The 2013 Ghemme Collis Carellae is brighter and also more ethereal than the Collis Breclamae. Sweet floral notes, red berry fruit, mint, sage and alpine flowers all grace the 2013. A wine of exquisite beauty, the Collis Carellae is decidedly airy, even though it has plenty of Ghemme punch too. Crushed autumn leaves, raspberry and pine all linger on the mid-weight finish. The 2013 is maybe a bit clenched, but a few years in bottle should take care of that." -Vinous

What importer Polaner Selections has to say about this wine...

VARIETALS
Nebbiolo
VINEYARD
Only the best grapes from the Carella vineyard are used for this bottling.
ORIENTATION
At 280-310 meters in elevation.
SOIL
Soil is made up of moraine (glacial deposit) which is high in minerals, rocks, gravel and sand.
VITICULTURE
Harvested in the second half of October. Guyot pruning.
VINIFICATION
Grapes were destemmed and then pressed keeping the rolls of the destemmer sufficiently distant from each other in order to avoid ill treating the grape as much as possible. After the fermentation at 28-30°C, as from the second day of processing two pressings a day were carried out in order to favour the extraction of the anthocyans and the polymerised tannins from the skins, which give that characteristic velvety, sweet and at the same time austere taste to this wine.
AGING
Aged for about two years in large oak casks followed by a year in the bottle before release.
