Description

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. Germano’s 6.6 hectares of vineyards are dedicated to the cultivation of Chardonnay, Barbera, Dolcetto and Nebbiolo, while a smaller area is reserved for Riesling and the indigenous white grape Nascetta. The Germano family is blessed with some of the very best vineyards, owning vines in Lazzarito (a true grand cru), Cerretta, Prapò and now, thanks to an inheritance, even the legendary Vigna Rionda, which many experts consider the single greatest Barolo vineyard of all.

This wine makes you remember blueberry, blackcurrant, liquorice and sweet spicys. The taste is full of energy, powerful, the tannins clear and accurate. The wine has excellent balance and length, but long tannic taste, good texture and mouthfeel. Serving suggestions: aged cheeses, meats and above all game.
