Description

Sergio Germano didn't know what to expect when he planted Riesling in 1993 in a vineyard in Cigliè, at the south end of the Dogliani appellation in Alta Langa, yet he just knew he loved the varietal and wanted to try to make a great wine from it. It turns out it was the ideal spot to grow Riesling with its limestone rich soil and higher altitude at between 1,150 to 1,500 feet above sea level. We first experienced this wine from the 2013 vintage which blew us away with its very correct varietal character of subtle petrol fumed aromas, exotic, almost tropical fruit and lime citrus flavors. This 2015 offers the same impression with the wet stone minerality shining through on the finish of bright, refreshing acidity as the 13. It is medium bodied and a bit more mouth filling than a typical German Riesling even though it was only fermented and aged for six months on the lees in stainless steel. Once again, Sergio crafterd really neat wine that is very versatile with a variety of dishes or just lovely on its own.
