Luigi Baudana Barolo Ceretta 2008

Luigi Baudana Barolo Ceretta 2008

Sku: 057441

Tasting notes
The result of these conditions is an austere and very mineral expression of Barolo. Pure cherries and plum, accented with spice, graphite, eucalyptus and licorice. Firm tannins are balanced by the lush fruit, making it an intense and powerful wine without forgetting its elegance.

 Wine Advocate 92 points (Oct 2012)
A more tense, focused expression of Nebbiolo comes through in the 2008 Barolo Cerretta. Firm yet well-balanced tannins provide the backdrop for expressive dark red fruit, spices and licorice. There is a mid-palate pliancy and generosity in the 2008 that is a bit unusual in this vintage, but at the same time there is also plenty of underlying structure. In 2008, the Cerretta is similar in style to Vajra’s Barolo Albe. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.
 Wine Spectator 94 points (Dec 5 2012)
Aromas of mint, white pepper and sawdust introduce flavors of cherry, strawberry and tobacco in this taut, linear red. Intense and balanced, building to a long, sinewy finish. Best from 2017 through 2037.óB.S.

Food pairing
Goes well with meat and aged cheeses, also very good with dry fruit (chestnuts, almonds)
