"The 1967 Carema was enjoyed off the list at Maialino, an excellent Italian restaurant with a really fantastic list. It was replete of older vintages at really great prices.
It was presented tableside impeccably on its side in a pouring basket. Once decanted it was served at perfect temperature. The nose was immediately gorgeous, none of the reduction or high volatile one can find in older Piemontese wines from time to time. The mouth had fruit and minerality, but seemed to be very high strung, high acid, masking some of the fat that the nose had suggested. Being that we were all proponents of letting the wine breathe in the glass, we just sipped it.
About 20 min into the session the mid palate totally reappeared as it had needed just a little longer beauty rest. The last of the bottle was splendid and a true bargain for such an older Bottle. (Under $200)"
Thanks, Peter, for sharing a Life Tasting and for reminding us that giving the wine time to "wake up" can have its rewards.
