Brand Luigi Baudana
Alcohol/vol 14%
An austere Barolo with a recognizable mineral expression. Aromas of ripe cherries and raspberries emerge elegantly from the glass. Aromas of menthol and leather add depth making this wine even more intriguing. Wide and refined, Cerretta is distinguished by elegant tannins, a great structure and a freshness that is best balanced with its ripe fruit.

Ripe and juicy, displaying macerated cherry and plum flavors, complemented by menthol and rosemary notes. A line of mineral underscores all the elements, revealing a dense matrix of fine tannins on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2042. 300 cases made, 40 cases imported.

If the Baudana is a wine of sensuality, the 2015 Barolo Cerretta is a Barolo of virile, explosive power, which, among other things, shows just how different the wines of Serralunga can be. Black cherry, plum, sage, menthol and licorice hit the palate in a firm, massively tannic Barolo that is going to require considerable patience. The Cerretta is the embodiment of Serralunga richness and structure. What a wine!

Underbrush, blue flower and menthol aromas form the nose along with a whiff of leather. The palate is still youthfully austere, offering dried cherry, cranberry, wild herbs and tobacco set against a backbone of assertive, noble tannins and bright acidity. Give this time to fully develop. Drink 2025-2035.
