Sergio's Lorenzino Dolcetto d'Alba shows bright, deep Bing-cherry coloring, with an extremely concentrated nose of cherry and tobacco. The structured, supple palate and the long and lingering finish, make for impeccable balance. Superb with salami and cured meats, and versatile with many Piemontese antipasti.
About this wine producer: 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 négociant in the region - Sergio moved their entire production to estate vinification and bottling within two years. Today Sergio is considered in the top rank of producers in Barolo, and is a driving force behind the rising reputation of Serralunga.
