2012 Ettore Germano Chardonnay Langhe Serralunga

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. 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. Sergio's interpretation of Chardonnay has a classy, focused minerality and distinct acidity which contrasts the primary aromas and flavors of apricot, lemon zest and banana. Try it with pan-fried trout in sage butter or Vitello Tonnato.
