TASTING NOTES

"A darker side of Nebbiolo emerges from the 2014 Barolo Baudana. Powerful but also supple, the 2014 is a wine of pure, arresting beauty. Sweet red cherry, kirsch and floral notes meld together in a striking, textured Barolo that is a joy to taste, even at this early stage." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Located beyond the sprawling Fontanafredda estate, Baudana has consistently maintained its reputation for top-notch Nebbiolo. In fact, those who farmed this vineyard never had difficulty selling its fruit. Barolo Baudana was one of the first crus to be exported successfully into foreign markets. The site sees sandy limestone mixed with veins of heavier blue clay. You get both elegance and structure as a result. The 2014 Barolo Baudana reveals black and purple fruit characteristics with ethereal tones of smoke, tar and spice on the finish." (93+ points) Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #237, June 2018

"Flavors of cherry, currant, eucalyptus, wild herbs, tar and iron are supported by dense tannins in this red. Though firm and compact, this remains long and detailed on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2036. 250 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Serralunga d’Alba. Tasted blind. Deep ruby with orange tinges. Earthy, minerally nose with hints of exotic spice. Sour cherry on the attack that is a little austere – but displaying a succulent finish with layers and layers of grainy tannins." Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com
