2008 Ettore Germano Barolo Cerretta

Merchant Reviews
In 1990, Sergio Germano returned from oenology school to his family's six hectares in Serralunga d'Alba. As a fourth-generation wine grower - in a part of Barolo where most farmers sold their grapes to Fontanafredda, the largest n├ęgociant in the region - Sergio moved their entire production to estate vinification and bottling within two years. Sergio's two hectare in the Cru Cerretta proper are rich in dense clay that produces intense, black fruit and fine-grained tannins. Two years in smaller barrels further tames the wine and help hint at the tobacco, fennel and truffle to come. Excellent with game, hard cheeses and, of course, truffle dishes.
