• Ettore Germano 2015 Cerretta Barolo

This site has southeast exposure and as a result a degree of presence and power that will leave the old hands at Barolo (those that cut their teeth in the 70s and 80s) shaking their heads. Those of us who came upon Barolo in the new millennium will enjoy the rip roaring style of this bottling. The nose shows a great concentration of cherry, truffle, forest floor, and just there orange peel. The palate (while it can go the distance) delivers immediate joy with cherry, truffle, earth, dusty raspberry, and a light spice on the finish. D&M Tasting Notes

My ideal winemaker in a traditional appellation like Barolo has the scientific understanding of winemaking that his predecessors lacked, while still respecting the traditions that they developed. Sergio Germano is just such a winemaker, and his Serralunga Barolos will never be creamy, international-style wines. Great wine is always made in the vineyard, and Sergio does much of the fieldwork himself, with the help of his wife Elena and a small crew. Some of the wines are 100% traditional, made with long macerations and big barrels, and some are made with medium-sized barrels or barriques, but they all express the best of these local grape varieties. Sergio has vineyards in two quite different areas, which allows him to make an unusual range of wine types; in addition to the classic regional wines like Barolo, Dolcetto and Barbera he also makes one of Italy’s best Rieslings, and some excellent sparkling wines.
