Luigi Baudana is one of the last garagiste estates still operating in the Langhe region. It is also the smallest of all the VinConnect Piemontese wineries. In 2009, Francesca, Isidoro and Guiseppe, the three children of famed Aldo and Milena Vajra of G.D Vajra, joined the Baudana family to bring new energies and an uncompromised respect to this story.
The Luigi Baudana 2017 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba reveals a robust and fruit-forward bouquet, with pressed blackberry and plum, followed by licorice, iron ore and some of the candied orange aromas that often come with fruit from Serralunga d'Alba. The wine is tight in terms of structure, and you feel its strength, but ultimately the sensations are polished and smooth. There are no rough edges to these well-managed tannins, and this is especially impressive in an unruly vintage such as 2017.

Poached strawberry, cherry, liquorice, dried herbs, grilled meat and menthol. It’s juicy and succulent, liquorice, strawberry and raspberry liqueur, stony feel to tannin, almonds and dried herbs, moderate acidity, a bit savoury and meaty, goes pretty long and closes with sweet fruit and earthy flavours. Like this. Serralunga ahoy! Tasted: June 2021; Price: $125; Closure: Cork; Drink: 2021-2030; Rated: 94 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
