Red
2009 Luigi Baudana Barolo Serralunga d'Alba Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barolo

Opaque, very little age.
A fantastic bouquet of spicy blackcurrants, a nose to linger with.
In the mouth there's already plenty to enjoy, loads of rich dark fruit, soft tannins in plenty, very full bodied, caramel and fruit in the mid palate, very long, this wine is still very young and will probably reach its zenith in 10 to 20 years.
