Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

96 WS / 95 WA / 95 VM / 95 WE / 17.5 JR

Macerated cherry and raspberry fruit is supported by rose, iron and eucalyptus flavors in this red, which is complex and intense, with an elegant frame and beautifully integrated tannins. Just as this feels approachable, the fine-grained tannins take hold, ending with a very long finish. Best from 2023 through 2045. From Italy. - BS,  Wine Spectator Insider Hot Wine

The Luigi Baudana 2016 Barolo Baudana opens to a saturated and dark garnet color. Of these three Baroli from Luigi Baudana, this is perhaps the most complete and round. It shows the mineral signature that we got in the Cerretta (also from Serralunga d'Alba) with a bigger fruit profile, complete with sweet cherry and blackberry preserves. In fact, this wine feels a bit riper, sunnier and sweeter than the others in this grouping. Last year, in the 2015 vintage, this was my favorite wine. But in this tighter and more linear 2016 vintage, I prefer the Cerretta by a very small margin. Both wines are excellent. Only 3,500 bottles were released. Monica Larner – The Wine Advocate

The 2016 Barolo Baudana is laced with sweet red cherry, floral overtones and silky tannins, all of which make it one of the more refined, sensual Serralunga Barolos readers will come across. In this tasting, the Baudana impresses with its haunting aromatics and transparent expression of Nebbiolo. Like all of these wines, it needs time in bottle but it is super impressive, even in the early going. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Balsamic aromas of camphor mingle with pressed rose, new leather and small red berry. Firmly structured and youthfully austere, the linear palate features dried cherry, licorice, cinnamon and tobacco alongside assertive but noble tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2026–2036. - Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast

Serralunga d'Alba. Tasted blind. Mid ruby with orange tinges. Beautiful, spicy fruit nose of great depth. Quite solid on the palate and the fruit hesitates to come out. The finish shows a finely balanced whole of ripe, sour-cherry fruit and finely chiselled, long tannins. (WS) Jancis Robinson
