2016 Luigi Baudana "Baudana" Barolo (Previously $100)

SKU #1499559 96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark 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. (BS) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (ML) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark 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. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

95 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This wine is high-toned and tautly structured, its flavors of cherry and raspberry crisp and precise. Cool, ferrous tannins underline the red fruit as notes of mint emerge. Brisk acidity will keep those flavors fresh while the tannins soften over the next several years. Inner quote mark (12/2020)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark 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. (KO) Inner quote mark (7/2020)
