Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator 93 - A top note of blood orange in the aroma segues into cherry, kirsch, menthol and iron flavors. Muscular, compact and firm, with a linear finish. Best from 2023 to 2042.—B.S
Antonio Galloni, Vinous 92 - Baudana’s 2014 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d’Alba is a fabulous entry-level bottling. Muscular Serralunga tannins enshroud a core of intense dark red fruit. The straight Barolo is a blend of fruit from the Baudana and Cerretta vineyards, and yet the wine has a level of aromatic brightness and lift that isn’t found in either of the vineyard designates. Everything about the 2014 is compelling.
A Barolo speaking of his terroir, an expression of Serralunga lifted power coming from grapes belonging to multiple vineyards of the village.These Nebbiolo vineyards are located in Serralunga with slightly different soil composition. An average altitude of 340m above the sea and 20-30 years old vines complete the identity of this wine.
A vivid ruby red colour with sharp fragrances of red raspberries, plums and cherries. Enriched by complex sensations of spices and liquorice, at the taste this Barolo is warm and soft, with a well-rounded body and refined tannins. The structure is the one of Serralunga, powerful and elegant in all its forms.
