Luigi Baudana Barolo Cerretta

  • Varietals: 100% Nebbiolo

  • Vineyards: Cerretta

  • Soils: The infertile topsoil has little organic matter and poor water retention which forces the vine roots to dig deeper into the yellow sand and limestone subsoils which date back to the Helvetian geological era.

  • 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 and the subsequent fermentation in wooden vats lasts between 30 and 40 days. The Cerretta spent 42 months in 25 and 50 hectoliter casks prior to bottling.
