Overview

Although most of the Ettore Germano vineyards are in Serralunga, the Riesling vineyards are about 30 miles (50 km) further south, in the village of Ciglié in the alta langa region, on the southernermost hill of the Dolcetto di Dogliani area. The soil here is rich in limestone, as is the soil in Serralunga, but with an underlying layer of “pietra di langa” stone that helps the vine to develop mineral characteristics. The altitude and the cooler climate in Ciglié help to develop freshness and complex aromas.
