Ettore Germano have been producing wine since 1856 in the hills of Barolo in Piedmont. It was started by a man called Ettore Germano and continues to be a family run operation focussing on delivering top quality wine from this world-famous area. In the mid to late 80's they expanded and strived to produce white wine.
The grapes are hand harvested and are brought to the winery where they are immediately pressed in whole cluster, taking the skins off the must. The must is fermented at a low temperature. A part of the base wine is refined in medium-sized, untoasted barrels, while the remaining part stays in steel tanks. Once the alcoholic fermentation has completed the wine ages on the lees for a period of refinement, at this time periodic bâtonnage is carried out. At the end of this period the wine will age on its lees for another minimum 30 months before the disgorgement and dosage takes place.
Intense straw yellow in colour. A fine and persistent perlage. On the nose their is typical bready notes of Metodo Classico, dried fruits such as peach and apricot and some underlying floral notes. On the palate it is rich and full with good acidity and a lovely creamy sensation given by the perlage.
