2014 Barolo, Cerretta, Luigi Baudana (G.D. Vajra)

Serralunga d'Alba, Piedmont

$75.00 per Bottle


11 Bottles




"The Cerretta vineyard is distinguished by thick red clay soils at its lower elevations. This segment of the vineyard provides the power and structure that holds this wine so firmly together. Indeed, that sense of power and dark fruit momentum outpaces the delicate and nuanced characteristics that are generally attributed to the cooler and immediate 2014 vintage. The 2014 Barolo Cerretta is a powerhouse wine—packed tight with dark fruit, spice and licorice—that should hold steady over the next 10-20 years of cellar aging." Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #237

"Gravitas and pure power are the signatures of the 2014 Barolo Cerretta. The black cherry, plum, lavender, sage and menthol notes add to an impression of dark, brooding intensity to go with the wine's vertical sense of structure. This tannic, massive Barolo is likely to require a number of years in bottle to become approachable." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"More savory than fruity, this red evokes black pepper, eucalyptus, menthol, tar, cherry and tobacco notes. Pure and elegant, with a wall of chewy tannins guarding the compact finish. Best from 2023 through 2038. 216 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Serralunga d’Alba. Tasted blind. Dark ruby. Lifted, lively concentrated red-fruit nose with a peppery edge. Succulent and multi-layered fruit palate with a lasting impact of sandy tannins." Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com
