Luigi Baudana Barolo Baudana 2015
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
This offers textbook Nebbiolo aromas of rose, forest floor, red berry, tobacco and a balsamic whiff of eucalyptus. The enveloping, delicious palate has structure and finesse, doling out juicy Morello cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and clove framed in tightly knit but refined tannins. Drink 2023-2035.
Macerated cherry, floral, licorice, mineral and Asian spice flavors highlight this firmly structured red. Taut and balanced, with plenty in reserve, building to a long, detailed finish. Best from 2022 through 2045. 400 cases made, 75 cases imported.
The 2015 Barolo Baudana is powerful, ample and deep, with tons of brightness to play off the sweet red cherry and pomegranate fruit. Already quite expressive, the 2015 appears to have a very bright future. Even today, its balance is simply impeccable. Within the context of the year, the 2015 Baudana is one of the most polished refined wines readers will taste.
