Ettore Germano

About Ettore Germano

Having been around as a vine grower since 1856, the Germano family is deeply rooted in Barolo DOCG, and it was the third generation, Ettore Germano, who founded his eponymous winery in the 1960s. However, it is Ettore’s son, Sergio Germano, who has fully realized the potential of this ancient estate and has taken the family property to new heights.

Traditional and classic in nature, the wines under the watchful eyes of Sergio Germano have seen notable improvement since being certified organic. Sustainable and chemical-free agriculture aside, the estate also follows local and traditional winemaking practices. With extended fermentation lasting anywhere from 30-60 days and using whole-bunch during vinification, Sergio’s Barolos are robust, old-school and long-lasting, thoughtfully expressing the varietal and the soil.

A winemaker with no shortage of creativity, Sergio Germano is famous for pioneering the cultivation of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling in Piedmont. Being one of the first in the region to produce sparkling wines, half of his portfolio has been dedicated to these amazing sparklers, which have garnered massive critical acclaim.

Ettore Germano Barolo Cerretta 2010 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (94)

The 2010 Barolo Cerretta is a plush and shapely wine with voluptuous contours and soft aromatic layering. This vineyard cru gives rise to some of the plumpest and most fruit-forward expressions of Nebbiolo and the 2010 vintage is an especially good example of that tendency. I love the savory tones of cigar box and old spice that spread so smoothly over the palate. The tannins are very dry and polished in texture. Drink: 2017-2028.

Ettore Germano Barolo Cerretta 2017 (6x75cl)

Wine Enthusiast (96)

Aromas of menthol, dark spice and rose form the enticing nose. Showing its Serralunga pedigree, the palate is youthfully austere but incredibly refined, delivering ripe raspberry, Morello cherry and licorice along with hints of coffee bean and hazelnut. A backbone of fine-grained tannins provides firm support. Drink now–2047.

Ettore Germano Barolo Prapo 2010 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (93)

Revving up with licorice, spice and dark fruit, the 2010 Barolo Prapo most certainly delivers the goods. This wine awards a deeply satisfying and meditative drinking experience thanks to its smooth entry and the ever-changing nature of the bouquet. Ripe fruit transitions to forest floor, white truffle, cola, dark spice and fragrant anisette. In the mouth, the wine is silky smooth but it also shows its inherent strength and longevity. I ages for two years in botte grande. Drink: 2017-2028.

Ettore Germano Barolo Prapo 2017 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (95)

A 9,000-bottle release, the 2017 Barolo Prapò is chiseled and whetted with a fine and carefully measured combination of fruit weight, structural power and mineral freshness. The bouquet offers cassis, wild plum, baked clay brick and camphor ash. The wine settles smoothly onto the palate and shows impressive integration with no rough edges to be found.

Ettore Germano Barolo Vigna Rionda 2016 (6x75cl)

Wine Enthusiast (99)

Enticing aromas of rose, iris, wild berry and spice appear in this gorgeous red. Combining structure and finesse, the delicious palate delivers ripe raspberry, Marasca cherry, star anise and pipe tobacco set against a backbone of firm, fine-grained tannins. Bright acidity keeps it impeccably balanced while a tangy mineral note lingers on the finish. While it's still quite young, it already shows class, pedigree and excellent aging potential. Drink 2026–2046.
