Ettore Germano Barolo Prapo 2017

£57.49

“The 2017 Barolo Prapò is powerful and quite dense, yet also retains a sense of transparency that is admirable. Sage, dried herbs, menthol licorice and earthy accents give the Prapò an element of wildness that is beguiling. The tannins are firm, and yet there is more than enough fruit to provide balance. The 2017 is very nicely done. Drinking window: 2024-2037. 94 points

Sergio Germano’s new Barolo releases are strong across the board. The move towards a style that shows more freshness and less oak influence is a big positive. The Lazzarito is the one Barolo in this range I find a bit less interesting than the others, as the style is more pushed. The last thing Serralunga fruit needs is more push.”
