Ettore Germano Barbera d'Alba 2022
Germano is well known for making formidible wines from Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo from his vines in Serralunga. But while others give Barbera not much thought, he delivers a vineyard designate wine that is simultaneously hedonistic and complex. The 2022 is magnifcent with is solid core of blackberry fruit, hints of cassis, violets, forest and a kiss of vanilla. This is hearty rich red to enjoy with steaks, roasts, lamb or pastas now through 2027.
