Palate Profile

One of the great 'garagiste' producers in Barolo, Luigi Baudana entrusted his Serralunga estate to the skilled hands of Guiseppe Vaira (from GD Vajra) in 2009, after a long search for the right people to take over his sought-after vineyards.

Fruit is sourced from three different plots across Serralunga, from generally younger vines, averaging 20-30 years of age. Maceration and fermentation times are a touch shorter than for the single cru wines, resulting in a wines of more immediate appeal and approachability.

Beautiful flavours of cherry, rosehip and raspberry, and a refined, precise palate - such a wonderful high end Barolo bargain

Critic Awards

Poached strawberry, cherry, liquorice, dried herbs, grilled meat and menthol. 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.

May very well turn out to be one of the best wines of the year in its peer group. Dark and wonderfully expressive, yet also light on its feet for a Serralunga Barolo, the 2017 has so much going on. Black cherry, plum, spice, gravel, cured meats, lavender and sage all meld together.

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.
