"Leads off with the scent of rose, followed by strawberry, cherry, mineral and tobacco flavors. Elegant and densely structured, with a lingering aftertaste of leafy and tobacco notes. Best from 2020 through 2038. 300 cases made." --The Wine Spectator

Luigi and Fiorina Baudana have been cultivating since 1975 the 4.5 hectares of their ownership vineyard situated on two important Crus (vine lands) of Serralunga d’Alba, called BAUDANA and CERRETTA, installed to Nebbiolo grapes for Barolo wine (2 has), Barbera d’Alba (0.5 ha), Dolcetto d’Alba (1 ha), Chardonnay (0.5 ha) and 0.5 ha installed with foreign species of vines (Sauvignon and Merlot) since 1996 in order to experiment some kind of imagination’s wine. Some Nebbiolo vineyards have been carefully preserved and now they are around 30 years old, while the others have been re-installed between the 1980 and the 1990. From 1996 onwards the produced grapes are vinified and the 25,000 obtained bottles are directly commercialized. Read less

Perfumed and precise on the nose with lovely wild cherry fruit and mineral notes early on the nose followed by tobacco, smoke, rosehips, and a dusty sheen. On entry one is greeted by firm small black cherry fruit that shows nice tension and a lovely tannin structure that is lacy and yet firm. Offering good midpalate complexity with earthy, herbal and camphor notes, this retains a lovely brightness right through the excellent length finish which reveals the elegant side of this wine. 93pts

Roses, spices, Middle Eastern spices, fenugreek, soft, balanced, easy, a bit evolved, nice tannin on the mid-palate. Simple but with a nice core or burnished, liquory and gently medicinal fruit.

Aged for 36 months in Slovenian oak. From two vineyards in the Cerretta cru planted on limestone and yellow sand soils. Spice-laden nose of nutmeg and clove with underlying licorice fruit. Texturally rich on the palate with licorice chocolate and black cherry fruit flavors. Very approachable and seductive up front though the tannic grip on the finish will need time to integrate. A lovely expression of a top-notch vintage this will age effortlessly over the next decade. Devon Magee.

The 2007 Barolo Cerretta is serious juice. This dark imposing Barolo covers every inch of the palate with deep layers of dark Serralunga fruit. There is tremendous excitement in the glass. The 2007 Barolo Cerretta is sensual racy and powerful all in equal measure. It is a wonderfully complete delineated wine that captivates all of the senses. This is another dazzling effort from Giuseppe Vajra. Wow! Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. 94+ --- Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
