Ettore Germano Langhe DOC Nebbiolo 2019
- Textured, savoury
Ettore Germano is one of the great Barolo producers in the commune of Serralunga d’Alba in Piemonte. Not everyone wants to pay big dollars for Barolo though, and Langhe nebbiolo provides the essence of the experience at a much more casual price. It’s the same variety of course, but structured in a more ‘drink young’ style.
Ettore Germano’s Langhe nebb still gets plenty of love and attention in the vineyard and winery since the producer has such a singular focus on quality. The grapes are hand-harvested, given a short maceration to retain freshness and aged in steel tanks rather than oak barrels so the wine is ready to go upon bottling. Cherries, raspberries and violets dominate the nose, followed by a palate of similar fruit characteristics, a bit of leather and savouriness, and soft tannins. It’s casually serious and imminently enjoyable.
Full price $40.00 from the producer.

If you’ve never plugged Piedmont into Google images then now’s the time. A northern Italian region that spoons both France and Switzerland, it’s one of the more picturesque wine regions in the world and better yet, the vinos do the dramatic backdrop justice. Piedmont wines benefit from the warmth of the Mediterranean and the chill of the Alps, and the combination of these climates means the valleys will often be shrouded in fog. Behind the fog you’ll find Piedmont’s two superstar wines: Barolo and Barbaresco. Known as the King of Wines in Italy, Barolo in particular is lauded over worldwide but really, there’s more to Piedmont than these two. Aside from juicy, tannic nebbiolo, keep an eye out for barbera, the go-to vino for many Italians.
