Notes from the Winemaker:
A Barolo speaking of his terroir, an expression of Serralunga lifted power coming from grapes belonging to multiple vineyards of the village.

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.

Varieties and Vines:
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.

Harvest and winemaking:
The harvest takes place in the second half of October, enjoying till the last moment of the rich nourishment the soil can offer.
The grapes are sorted by hand. Fermentation usually lasts 25 days long before the wine is moved into large casks for aging.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2016 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba achieves a loose and open fiber that gives this wine the most accessible personality among these three Baroli released by Luigi Baudana (owned by G.D. Vajra). On the Barolo scale, the fruit is sharp and straightforward with easily identifiable tones of black cherry, plum and cassis. The intensity of that characteristic Nebbiolo licorice and cola is downplayed in this wine, as dark fruit is the leading force. However, this vintage introduces the acidity and natural structure to play the wine forward for 10 years or more. This release of 8,000 bottles needs a little more time." - Monica Larner (23rd Jul 2020)

93 Points - Vinous:
"The 2016 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba is a gorgeous entry-level wine in this range. Sweet floral and savory notes open up first, followed by hints of scorched earth, graphite, iron and blood. Deceptive in its mid-weight structure, the 2016 packs a serious punch of both Serralunga depth and complexity of aromas and flavors. This is very nicely done." - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2020)

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Fragrant aromas of blue-flower, forest-berry menthol form the enticing nose. Smooth, taut and delicious, the focused palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, spiced cranberry and star anise alongside firm, polished tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2023–2031." - Kerin O’Keefe (9/1/2020)
