The Luigi Baudana Barolo Baudana, is a 100% Nebbiolo wine made from a location 350 m above sea level with 50 year old vines. The blue clay soil conditions of the Baudana site are optimal for grape ripening - the ability to retain water in the heat allows full phenolic and sugar ripening to occur. After harvesting the grapes, they are fermented in one large Slovenian oak barrel where a small percentage of the harvest goes through fermentation in stainless steel. Malolactic fermentation and 32 months aging will also take place in the Slovenian oak barrels.

In the nose you are greeted by notes of cherries and plums, complemented by the underlying notes of spices, graphite and eucalyptus. In the mouth, the firm tannins are balanced by a welcome acidity.

Luigi and Fiorina Baudani are local legends of the Serralunga region and have been engaged in grape growing for over 30 years. In 2009, GD Vajra was given the responsibility of making wines from these grapes and expanding the Baudani family's legacy. Luigi Baudana has the distinction of being one of the smallest boutique wineries in Serralunga d'Alba and the wider Barolo region. Covering only 2.6 hectares, they focus on quality, not quantity, and their selection of vineyards is second to none, with vineyards in the village's prime crus. They really are the epitome of a garage owner producer!

Vineyard for 2019 Luigi Baudana Barolo Baudana BIO

G.D. Vajra is a testament to the harmonious relationship between terroir and the rich legacy of a passionate winemaking family. Situated in the renowned Barolo appellation, this enchanting estate has been crafting exceptional wines for generations, capturing the essence of the land and the profound stories that shaped their journey.

The cornerstone of G.D. Vajra's wine making philosophy lies in the concept of terroir. Every bottle that bears their name is an expression of the unique characteristics of the vineyards and the distinct microclimates that bless the Langhe region. From the ethereal vineyard of Bricco delle Viole to the enchanting slopes of Fossati and Ravera, each parcel of land is meticulously tended, allowing the grapes to mature and develop their individual personalities.

The Vajra family, led by the visionary Aldo Vajra, has been nurturing vineyards and crafting wines since the 1970s. Aldo made his first organic wines at the age of 18 and became one of the first wineries to replant the forgotten grape variety Freisa.  He continued to innovate with the plantings of less traditional varieties such as Riesling and Pinot Noir. The Vajra family to this day remain steadfast in their commitment to sustainable practices, seeking to preserve the natural biodiversity of their vineyards for generations to come.

The Vajra family's winemaking journey is a testament to their unwavering love for their heritage. With a blend of tradition and innovation, they have honed their craft over the years, producing wines that carry the spirit of their ancestors. Whether it's the iconic Barolo, the elegant Dolcetto, or the vibrant Barbera, each bottle is a reflection of the Vajra family's deep-rooted passion and dedication.
