Notes from the Winemaker:
A wine of great class that expresses the characteristics of the individual sub-zones from which the grapes that compose it come from, in particular the power of Bussia (in Monforte d’Alba) sweetened by the elegance of Cannubi (in Barolo) in a perfect balance guaranteed by Terlo (Village of Barolo). With the vintage 2017 we will add also the grapes of Monvigliero (In Verduno).

With a brilliant red colour slightly amber with time, exuberant in its fragrance of fruit and spices, of great body, full and velvety with a long final taste of goudron and spices.
The tannic characteristics guarantee a long life in bottle in the best vintages, also 20 years.
The first production is been about 11.000 bottles.

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - James Suckling:
"I like the aromas of chocolate powder and dried strawberries with arid soil and mushrooms. It’s full-bodied with firm, silky tannins that are powerful and racy. Needs time to soften, but a balanced, beautifully structured Barolo. Try after 2022." - (16 May, 2020 )

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Red-berry, menthol and dark-spice aromas lift out of the glass. Reflecting the nose, the juicy palate delivers raspberry compote, black cherry and nutmeg set against enveloping, fine-grained tannins. It closes on a coffee bean note. Drink 2024–2031." Kerin O’Keefe (9/1/2020)

90 Points - Vinous:
"Einaudi's entry-level 2016 Barolo Ludo is juicy and inviting, which make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years, give or take. Sweet red cherry, spice and floral notes are nicely pushed forward. Short macerations of 21 days bring out the fruit and a lovely sense of mid-weight structure, along with silky tannins that make the 2016 easy to drink and appreciate, even at this early stage. " - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2020)
