Luigi Baudana Barolo Baudana 2019
The 2019 Barolo Baudana is flush with ripe red and black cherry, pressed flowers, and vibrant purity and depth. It is potent with blood orange, and it has a rich, firm structure that is ripe with turned earth, crushed rocks, and saline. It is a fully structured red with a long finish. Drink 2026 and over the following two or more decades.
The 2019 Barolo Baudana is absolutely captivating. Effusive and bright in the glass, with tons of freshness and remarkable fruit purity, the Baudana offers up generous dark red fruit, spice, leather, kirsh, hard candy, cedar, tobacco and underbrush. There's terrific depth here and exceptional balance too. Rose petal, white pepper and chalk lift the high-toned, intensely saline finish.
Vivid aromas of cherry stand out as the dominant fruit note, harmonizing with abundant mineral and mixed spice characteristics. The palate presents a firm yet giving structure. The chiseled palate offers notes of wildflowers, savory herbs and spices finishing with a persistent minerality. Drink 2026-2046.
Cherry, raspberry liqueur, mint and mineral flavors highlight this taut, dense red, which is balanced, with eucalyptus and juniper notes chiming in on the protracted finish. Best from 2026 through 2045.
