Keep it natural, baby.
A deep red in the glass introduces aromas of pure cherries and plums accented with spice, graphite, eucalyptus and licorice. Warm and dry character with firm tannins balanced by a fresh and gentle acidity. A unique soil composition with blue clay translates in a wine with a powerful elegance.
Luigi Baudana is one of the last garagiste estates in Langhe. With just 4 quality hectares, they are located in some of the most prestigious Barolo crus in Serralunga d'Alba. The wines of the Luigi Baudana collection are an expression of powerful, genuine and true-to-terroir wines, expressing the best of the Nebbiolo grape. Baudana, the family name, the historical cru and the hamlet, is a sign of just how deep the family's roots are tied to this land.
For over thirty years, Luigi Baudana and his wife Fiorina carried on the long family tradition of wine making in Serralunga d'Alba. Their love for their vineyards is like the love they have for each other. With a humble production of just about 800 cases of Barolo, they remain one of the best kept secrets in Langhe.
In 2009 Luigi Baudana entrusted the Vaira family with his historical vines in Serralunga d’Alba. This was proof that dreams do come true! Aldo had always loved Barolo from the Helvation soils of the area, and felt honored to have the chance to better understand and work this land. With a love for challenges, the Vaira family was enthusiastic to start a new adventure within such an authentic reality. Most of all, Giuseppe the oldest son, was overjoyed when he recognized some of the best ever seen fruit in these vineyards of Cerretta and Baudana. He looked forward to starting a new chapter in the family’s winemaking production.
