SLOW WINE 2018

“In the words and gestures of Andrea Careglio, thirty-one year old jumped at the helm of this small but firm family company, there is all the safety of those who have a definite vision of their future: in a place less know of the Roero, the Careglio are demonstrating , harvest after harvest, that there is space to grow and make great wines from native vines, and, at the same time, to spend in an ‘intelligent promotion of the territory.
We were impressed by the frankness, the precision and the typicality of the battery of tasted wines.
Floral and slightly mineral, the Langhe Favorita also has a beautiful acidity.
Beautiful version for this Roero Arnies 2016, which is expressed on citrus, flower and saltiness; on the palate has lengthness and an enthralling drinkability.
Equally successful was the Gramplin 2016 RosÈ Wine, a fixed nail to which the Careglio’s rightly wanted to give space.
Sharp in fruity aromas, the Barbera d’Alba 2015 is fresh and flowing.
Even the Langhe Nebbiolo is agile and elegant.
Finally, Roero 2014: it shows up with scents of fragrant and pleasant berries, to continue on the palate with dynamism, ripe tannins and a slender final.”

VINI BUONI D'ITALIA 2017

From the well-tended property vineyards, located on sandy and sandstone soil at high-altitude called “Bric”,it born an excellent Roero Docg is perfumed with rose, violet and orange peel. A powerful wine with tannins that are still important, consistent, fresh and dry in its long finish.

Good also the Langhe Nebbiolo, with fresh and floral wisteria lucerne, and a Favorita typical and fruity, with a sapid and soft mouth. Very pleasant the Roero Arneis, fresh and with citrus and mineral aromas.

BEREBENE 2017 ``best buy under 13€``

This small family business founded in 1986 cultivates the vines typical of the Roero area: Arneis, Barbera, Favorita and Nebbiolo in its 8 hectares of vineyards and offers a range of excellent quality wines.

This year we especially liked the 2013 Roero, one of the best of the typology, thanks to the aromas of small red fruits, incense and wet earth with spicy nuances, while on the palate, even if the tannins are still a bit aggressive, it is long and pulpy, rich in fruit and savory.

They have 8 Ha of organically cultivated vines, including 4,6 Ha of Arneis, and a total production of about 30 thousand bottles. The vineyards have a predominantly southern exposure. Careglio puts the focus on traditional winemaking with no skin contact for the Arneis. This is the only producer in Baldissero d’Alba.
CAREGLIO Roero Arneis 2015 90 points: A mineral-driven Arneis with substantial breadth on the palate, showing aromas and flavors of orchard fruit. Quite delicious with a rich, full palate and good extract with a chalky finish. A blend of fruit of different vineyards, most with a southerly exposure.
CAREGLIO Roero 2013 90 points: the Careglio Roero offers aromas of fresh red berries, cherry, plum, and underbrush. It’s soft on the attack with a silky texture and fine, dry tannins. The wine is a blend of two different vineyards in Baldissero d’Alba. Aged in 10 Hl oak casks.

SLOW WINE 2017

“Andrea Careglio is the young winemaker at the helm of this beautiful family that we could see it grow a lot in the last years in terms of quality. Andrea, born in 1986, has always given his contribution on the company, and since 2008 he has been doing it full-time. In addition to the commitment between their own four walls, we like to remember his efforts for the promotion of the territory. Currently it is councilor of the Consorzio vini del Roero. Is planned the construction of a new cellar.
Andrea focuses on the classic vines of the territory, vinified in a traditional way and without overwhelming technical interventions.
The Roero Arneis 2015 has structure and softness, it closes fresh and savory.
The Langhe Favorita 2015 is more simple, linear and graceful. About the red wines,
it stand out the red Roero 2013, refined in barrels of 10 hectoliters: broad, clear and very “roerino” about the aromas of ripe red fruit, is structured but agile on the palate, with tannins that emerges in the closing. Also the Langhe Nebbiolo 2014 exhibits a recognizable territorial stamp, but the aromas are more youthful and the palate is very slender, with solid tannic grip. The fresh vintage gave Barbera 2014 less pulpy than usual.”

BEREBENE 2016

Pierangelo Careglio founded this small company in 1986 and today, together with his son Andrea, he proposes a series of wines of good quality and typicality.
Their Roero Arneis 2014 is one of the best we have tasted of this difficult vintage.

The nose is complex, with floral aromas of broom and iodine tones in the background, while at the palate is simpler and smoother, but still savory, with good fruit and freshness.

“The only producer of Baldissero d’Alba, Andrea always surprises us. His skills and his active enthusiasm in the local Consorzio roerino are positive signs of a growing territory. A small production at the sign of quality, with wines always clean and traditional. Even the average exit prices of its bottles are definitely honest, being able to boast a not indifferent quality.
Andrea looks for typicality and freshness in his wines through traditional vinifications and classic fermentations. The Langhe Favorita 2014 is exemplary in this sense, with an extraordinary drinkability and fruity. The Roero Arneis 2014 is persistent and with a finish of white pulp fruit. the rosè Gramplin 2014 plays on the freshness combined with the acidity of the grapes . Floral notes and fine tannins for the Langhe Nebbiolo 2014. Roero 2012 (“VINO SLOW”) it is certainly not a example of power, but has elegance and finesse of record. One of the best tasting of the denomination. A very welcome surprise, with territorial matrix definitely recognizable and enjoyable.”

CAREGLIO PIERANGELO: Barbera d’Alba 2013 (best buy):
Floreal aromas and fresh berry flavors give this stainless steel-aged Barbera a lively character.
With its tangy acidity and light dusting of dried herb notes, it’s a good match to a bowl of cacio e pepe.

SLOW WINE 2015

“Andrea, the only producer of Baldissero d’Alba, in the “heart of the heart” of Roero, already has clear ideas on the road to take, despite his young age: traditional vinification, research of the typicality of the vine and wine, promotion of the territory . Andrea is an active part of the new Consortium of Roero wines and makes us look with optimism at the advancing “new era”. Pierangelo supports him.
In the small but clean cellar, Andrea looks for the typicality and finds it in the successful Langhe Favorita 2013, fresh, fruity, one of the best interpretations on the market. Same style – only steel and 3-4 months “sur lie” – with herbaceous notes in evidence for the pleasant Roero Arneis 2013. Very fine, long, with fruity tones and smooth tannins Roero 2011, refined in medium-sized botticelle.
The Langhe Nebbiolo 2013 is interesting, fresh and immediate, with an enthralling drink.

First year for the Rosato Gramplin 2013, a different interpretation of nebbiolo, where the tannin is there but doesn’t compromise the drinkability; it’s a fresh and pleasant wine.”
