About

Ratings:

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. (Cellar Selection)

95 Decanter

Ettore Germano owns 3.2 hectares in the well known Serralunga MGA of Cerretta, between 350 and 400 metres above sea level. Peony and pomegranate juice are enhanced by smoky oak, quite assertive at present. The attack is fresh and tight, with huge extraction on the mid-palate showcasing angular, powerful tannins and delivering sternness on the finish. The wine is balanced, however, by fruit concentration with a blood orange finish.
