Winemaker Notes

Straw-yellow with golden hues. Delightful sparkling with fine and persistent "perlage". The nose is complex, attractive and delicate with notes of yellow flowers, white-fleshed fruit, bread crust and mineral hints. The palate is multifaceted, straight, dry and fresh with flavors of citrus. It is both elegant and intense with rich texture and a long mineral aftertaste.

Blend: 85% Pinot Noir, 15% Chardonnay

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

This is another fun wine in a long list of Classic Method sparkling wines from Alta Langa (north of Barolo and Barbaresco). The Enrico Serafino 2016 Alta Langa Metodo Classico Oudeis Brut offers a rich and fleshy expression with lots of orchard fruit, Golden Delicious apple and toasted pine nut. This sparkling wine, made with 85% Pinot Nero and 15% Chardonnay, reaches just the right level of intensity with generous texture that is never too heavy or flat. The wine's determined energy is its most compelling aspect. It ages on the lees for 36 months.

Wine Enthusiast
Made with 85% Pinot Nero and 15% Chardonnay, this has inviting aromas of bread dough, red berry, eucalyptus and baking spice. The aromas follow through to the focused palate, along with pomegranate, hazelnut and star anise set against a refined perlage. Vibrant acidity lifts the finish.

Tasting Panel

Golden color; dry yet lush, rich, and ripe with intense fruit as well as minerals and spice. Long and charming.

Enrico Serafino Winery Video

Since 1878, Enrico Serafino has been a family winery crafting artisan wines that show their commitment from generation to generation. This careful dedication to quality comes from the vineyards spread throughout the UNESCO World Heritage site, in the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato in the Piedmont region. Their sustainable approach and meticulous execution allow them to craft a whole set of wines true to the terroir.

Located in Canale, the winery produces a wide array of traditional Piemontese wines, both from the area around the winery in Roero, and also from Barolo and Gavi. Less typically however, Serafino produces Metodo Classico (fermented in the bottle) sparkling wines, from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. Serafino was on the forefront in the mid-1900s, of the development of what would eventually become the Alta Langa. Today the winery produces three Alta Langa DOCG wines, with their ZERO Alta Langa Metodo Classico being awarded the Best Italian Sparkling Wine of the Year by the prestigious Gambero Rosso Guide in 2014.

The winery also owns 25 acres of Barolo vineyards in the renowned areas of Serralunga, Monforte d'Alba, and Castiglione Falletto where they produce Barolo Monclivio, Barolo Seralunga, and a Nebbiolo Langhe from the “forgotten” Picotener grape. 

Today, after more than 140 harvests, Enrico Serafino is still family-owned maintaining the original artisanal soul, respect for future generations and passion for details that have distinguished the winery since the beginning.

Set upon a backdrop of the visually stunning Alps, the enchanting and rolling hills of Piedmont are the source of some of the country’s longest-lived and most sought-after wines. Vineyards cover a great majority of the land area—especially in Barolo—with the most prized sites at the top hilltops or on south-facing slopes where sunlight exposure is maximized. Piedmont has a continental climate with hot, humid summers leading to cold winters and precipitation year-round. The reliable autumnal fog provides a cooling effect, especially beneficial for Nebbiolo, Piedmont’s most prestigious variety.

In fact, Nebbiolo is named exactly for the arrival of this pre-harvest fog (called “nebbia” in Italian), which prolongs cluster hang time and allows full phenolic balance and ripeness. Harvest of Nebbiolo is last among Piedmont's varieties, occurring sometime in October. This grape is responsible for the exalted wines of Barbaresco and Barolo, known for their ageability, firm tannins and hallmark aromas of tar and roses. Nebbiolo wines, despite their pale hue, pack a pleasing punch of flavor and structure; the best examples can require about a decade’s wait before they become approachable. Barbaresco tends to be more elegant in style while Barolo is more powerful. Across the Tanaro River, the Roero region, and farther north, the regions of Gattinara and Ghemme, also produce excellent quality Nebbiolo.

Easy-going Barbera is the most planted grape in Piedmont, beloved for its trademark high acidity, low tannin and juicy red fruit. Dolcetto, Piedmont’s other important red grape, is usually ready within a couple of years of release.

White wines, while less ubiquitous here, should not be missed. Key varieties include Arneis, Cortese, Timorasso, Erbaluce and the sweet, charming Muscat, responsible for the brilliantly recognizable, Moscato d'Asti.

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
