‘Rich and round, this lively red is packed with bright cherry pie, plum tart and earth flavors, showing flourishes of menthol and tobacco. The tannins are well-mannered, and a mineral note emerges on the lingering aftertaste. Best from 2024 through 2045. 260 cases made.’ – Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, 95/100

From a historic vineyard in Serralunga d'Alba, the Luigi Baudana 2017 Barolo Baudana takes an extra minute to open and ultimately reveals a consistent and compact package of aromas centered on dark fruit, rusty earth and crushed flowers. It's quite nice the way the wine holds its cards closer to its proverbial chest. It lets its guard down one little piece at a time. There is some sweetness, too, and the wine feels weighty and powerful. I'd definitely give it a few more years of cellar aging so that the wine finds time to focus and flesh out. Some 3,500 bottles were released. Drink Date2024 - 2038’ – Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 95/100

‘A chewy, tannic wine with dark berry, walnut and some tar. Full-bodied and flavorful. Firm and intense yet fine-grained tannins. Give it two or three years to come together. Try from 2023.’ – James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, 93/100
