  • Delivery Information

The grapes to produce the Barolo DOCG Cerretta Ettore Germano are hand harvested and then de-stemmed and lightly crushed before undergoing alcoholic fermentation in vertical steel tanks. Maceration takes place for about 40-45 days with several pump overs happening daily, and also the occasional délastage, to encourage extraction of color and tannins. After racking and malo-lactic fermentation, the wine is then placed into Medium-sized oak barrels. Each barrel having a different age and a different passage, the wine will age there for 18 to 24 months. After aging the wines will then be ready to be bottled and will rest in bottle for another 12 months before being available to the market.

Since 1856, the Germano family has seen four generations of devotion to both their viticulture and excellent wine production. The estate lies on one of the most important crus of Serralunga d’Alba named “Cerretta”, a hill with a wide winegrowing area facing South, South-West. Germano’s 6.6 hectares of vineyards are dedicated to the cultivation of Chardonnay, Barbera, Dolcetto and Nebbiolo, while a smaller area is reserved for Riesling and the indigenous white grape Nascetta. The Germano family is blessed with some of the very best vineyards, owning vines in Lazzarito (a true grand cru), Cerretta, Prapò and now, thanks to an inheritance, even the legendary Vigna Rionda, which many experts consider the single greatest Barolo vineyard of all. Sergio and his wife Elena manage the estate from viticultural to winemaking to sales. Sergio’s wines have steadily improving for the last decade, and today we are proud to represent one of the most talented winemakers from Piedmont. Having all of his red vineyards situated within Serralunga, enables Sergio to make characteristically powerful, muscular and intense wines, that are the biggest, richest and most long-lived of all Barolo.
