Luigi Baudana Barolo

  • Varietals: 100% Nebbiolo

  • Vineyards: The Barolo Serralunga is made from a blend of the young vines of the Cerretta and Baudana vineyards. Cerretta lies at an altitude of approximately 250-395 meters and faces south-east and south-west. Baudana lies at an altitude of 250-350 meters and faces south to south-west.

  • Soils: Cerretta’s soil is of poor organic content. Baudana’s is compact and calcareous with limited sand percentages.

  • Farming: Vajra has always believed in sustainable farming and keeps the turf natural and green in the vineyard. Traditional pruning is practiced as well as using the Guyot mixed system of trellising. No irrigation is used, while green harvest is decided according to the vintage

  • Winemaking: Crushing is completed by the end of October. Maceration lasts 30- 40 days in wooden vats. Starting in 2005, Luigi Baudana implemented a more gentle ageing process which includes Slavonian oak and extensive ageing. The Barolo Serralunga spent 42 months in 25 and 50 hectolitre casks prior to bottling.
