2011 Ettore Germano Riesling Herzu

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 négociant in the region - Sergio moved their entire production to estate vinification and bottling within two years. The DOC Langhe is Piemonte's open "appellation," equivalent to IGT in Tuscany, and this freedom, in Sergio's hands, has produced some exciting wine. Hérzu is the name given to the steep, limestone-rich "cliff" overlooking the Tanaro, south of Alba. The soil produces a unique and compelling rendition of Riesling (one of Sergio's favorite grapes).
