Description

Ettore Germano is a true protagonist of Serralunga d'Alba, and this wine shows expertise and passion for territory. The 2016 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba delivers the characteristics one would associate with this growing area that is associated with some of the most structured and powerful Baroli, thanks to the unique calcareous clay soils found here. You get dark fruit, spice, tar and lots of tangy licorice or aniseed. Those licorice aromas veer toward medicinal with balsam herb and camphor ash. This vintage has it all wrapped up into one neat package. Just give it a bit more time to soften. (94/100 Monica Larner, Wine Advocate)

Producer Information: Ettore Germano

Since 1856, the Germano family has seen four generations of devotion to both their viticulture and excellent wine production. The estate lies on one of the most important crus of Serralunga d'Alba named "Cerretta", a hill with a wide winegrowing area facing South, South-West. Sergio and his wife Elena manage the estate from viticultural to winemaking to sales. Having all of his red vineyards situated within Serralunga enables Sergio to make characteristically powerful, muscular and intense wines, that are the biggest, richest and most long-lived of all Barolo.
