Average critic rating : 92.0 points



The 2008 Barolo Prapo is a serious wine endowed with layers of expressive dark red fruit, smoke, iron and tar. There is plenty of Serralunga muscle and intensity in the glass. This is the most virile of the 2008s I tasted from Germano, and is the most likely to take the longest to come around. Mint, licorice, tar and smoke are some of the notes that add complexity on the finish. Although the Prapo is delicious, it isn't quite as complete as the Cerretta. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028. Wine Advocate.April, 2012

The Germano Ettore estate lies in Cerretta, one of Serralunga’s most important crus. Winemaker Sergio Germano is highly talented and makes powerful, muscular Barolo that befits Serralunga; he also experiments with a few non-indigenous varieties, notably Riesling.

“Sergio Germano is doing wonderful work in Serralunga. There is no doubt his wines deserve more recognition.” Antonio Galloni
