Poderi Luigi Einaudi Barolo Ludo 2016



Classic medium ruby with garnet hints. Bright and Clear. A bouquet of rose; toast, refined, focused, concentrated ripe cherries, sweet plums, blackberries, mulberries; dry herbs, tea leaves, savoury finish. The palate reflects the nose with good focus, fine and chiselled tannins. There is lovely balance, weighty and textured, with a light-being and a long delicate finish(anise and other lifted, forwarded, fine spices). Quite round.


This is considered an entry-level Barolo because there are other Poderi wines that are more even more seriously made wines such as their Bussia and Cannubi. However, this Barolo challenges with its harmonious blending synergized from the integration of pure Nebbiolo from Bussia(giving power), Terlo(balance), and Cannubi(elegance). This wine challenge some of the best Barolos.


Pure Nebbiolo from the sub-regions ferments in steel and cement at controlled temperature, with subsequent maceration of 22-25 days. Once the malolactic fermentation is complete, it follows a long maturation period in big oak to finish with further refinement in the bottle—scores 93 and 94. A modern rendition within the tradition.
