    Barolo "Baudana" DOCG 2017

    Black cherry fruit, smoke, wild herbs, liquorice and tar create a compelling backdrop of aromas, flavours and textures as this dazzling, energetic Barolo opens in the glass. The intense final is accompanied by delicate rose petals, lavender and a subtle mineral-salty vein. Its stable tannin framework awaits a few more years of bottle ageing, as is typically the case with a classic Serralunga Barolo. A wine full of energy and intensity. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Youthful mid ruby. Perfumed and inviting with earthy hints and concentrated fruit. Generous mouthful of cherry, which at the same time is very contained and with a good dose of acidity. Very fine, persistent tannins underneath clinging to the fruit. Finely balanced and nervy at the same time." Jancis Robinson

    "Luigi Baudana is the historical brand name of this estate, managed by the Vajra winery. The wine is fermented and aged in big Slavonian oak casks. The first impression amazes on the nose for its freshness. pepspice, restrained fruits and pomegranate juice, without any oxidative touch. The fairly natural and refreshing acidity balances well-packed but austere tannins, and represents the character of this cru. It's assertive on the finish at present, but although it needs more bottle ageing, the texture is remarkable." Decanter

    "A chewy, tannic wine with dark berry, walnut and some tar. Full-bodied and flavorful. Firm and intense yet fine-grained tannins. Give it two or three years to come together." James Suckling

    "From a historic vineyard in Serralunga d'Alba, the Luigi Baudana 2017 Barolo Baudana takes an extra minute to open and ultimately reveals a consistent and compact package of aromas centered on dark fruit, rusty earth and crushed flowers. It's quite nice the way the wine holds its cards closer to its proverbial chest. It lets its guard down one little piece at a time. There is some sweetness, too, and the wine feels weighty and powerful. I'd definitely give it a few more years of cellar aging so that the wine finds time to focus and flesh out. Some 3,500 bottles were released." Robert Parker

    "Rich and round, this lively red is packed with bright cherry pie, plum tart and earth flavors, showing flourishes of menthol and tobacco. The tannins are well-mannered, and a mineral note emerges on the lingering aftertaste." Wine Spectator

    "The 2017 Barolo Baudana is such a gorgeous wine. It, too conveys the power of Serralunga, but with a bit less heft than is typically the case. Sweet dark cherry, iron, cedar, rose petal, mint and white pepper give the 2017 its effusive, inviting personality. This is such a tremendous showing." Vinous

    "Balsamic aromas of camphor and cedar mingle with rose and leather on this full-boded, savory red. Structured and delicious, the juicy palate is still youthfully austere, delivering ripe Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, baking spice and licorice framed in noble tannins before a black tea finish."
