Producer: Luigi Baudana (familia di G.D. Vajra) (Non-Certified Organically Grown Grapes)
Region: Italy-Rinascimento Wine Co.-Northern Calif. Only
Wine: 2012 Barolo, Baudana DOCG

Baudana is a truly historical vineyard that was lost for many years because most of the grapes were sold to large cooperatives and the singular quality of the fruit was lost in the resulting mass of wine that was produced. 

The vineyard lies in an area of compact chalky soils that have very little sand, thus enhancing its ability to retain water and nourish the vines in the hot, dry summer months.  Baudana produces very rich Barolos with a wide, round profile.  Tannins are ripe, but softer than Cerretta and the chalky soil makes for a richer, smoother finish.
