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 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.
