Luigi Baudana Barolo Baudana

  • Varietals: 100% Nebbiolo

  • Vineyards: Baudana, 1 ha. single vineyard

  • Soils: The vineyard borders the famous 'Sant'Agata' fossil marls and the 'Lequio formation' ancient soils. The white soil is compact and calcareous with limited amounts of sand which enhances water retention.

  • 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: 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 Baudana spent approximately 35 months in 25 and 50 hectoliter casks prior to bottling.
