The 2008 Ghemme Collis Carellae is a real stunner. Rose petal, mint, violets, sweet red cherries and licorice are some of the many notes that blossom in a firm, classically built wine that will make lovers of traditionally made Nebbiolos weak at the knees. Vibrant, translucent and deeply expressive, the 2008 is simply magnificent from the very first taste. I imagine the 2008 will reward readers with another 15-20 years of exceptional drinking. What a pleasure it is to taste the 2008 today. (Antonio Galloni on July 2015)

Carella is one of the historic cru of Ghemme. The name Carella is a very ancient geographical name of Celtic origin, "Carellaedunum" which means "Rise of Carella". Among its vineyards were discovered Neolithic finds, dating back to the 4th millennium B.C.
