2011 Ettore Germano Dolcetto d'Alba Pradone

Merchant Reviews

In the summer of 2011, growers in the Langhe worried that the exceptional heat and drought might result in a vintage like 2003. But the nights were relatively cool, and plenty of rain in the previous winter sustained the vines through an excellent early harvest.

In the glass, the wine has a deep garnet color, with dark plums, red currants, and crushed violets in the nose. On the palate, the wine is rich and juicy, with mouth coating concentration, and finely layered flavors of ripe black fruit framed by soft, silky round tannins and fine Serralunga minerality. The flavors persist through a long, vibrant, almost plump finish. Drink now – 2016.
