This Lombardy blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is unusual in that it includes Pinot Noir. Black raspberry on the nose is joined by notes of thyme, chocolate and earth. On the palate the wine is supple with currant flavors and good acids and minerality.
Black raspberry, thyme, pine, black licorice, fennel and white pepper.
Caminella is located in Bergamo just north of Milan in the foothills of the Alps. Winemaking in the area dates to the 11th century but became especially important in the 16th century under the control of Benedictine monks at the nearby Abbey of San Paulo d'Argon. The owners credit their success to passion, intuition, will and technology. The rest they leave to Mother Nature, with thanks.
The Caminella's firm tannins make it well suited for steak on the grill. For a meatless dish, why not try my Portobello Mushrooms Grilled Like a Steak?
Acclaimed Renaissance painter Lorenzo Lotto painted his fresco masterpiece "Christ in the Vineyards" in the nearby Chapel of Trescore Suardi in 1524, a testament to the longstanding importance of wine in the region.
