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: Sergio is the perfect example of a modern, scientifically trained winegrower who is grounded in the traditions of his region. Representing the third generation of vine growing Germanos in Serralunga d’Alba, he was the first to bottle the entire production at the estate, beginning in 1993. His ambition, he says, is to express in his wine the character of each vineyard, of each grape variety, and of each vintage, as well as the “connection between Sergio Germano and Serralunga d’Alba.”
