OLIM BAUDA GAVI DI GAVI DOCG 

Piedmont is almost as famous for truffles as it is wine, those elusive delectable delights that need to be rooted out from the depths of the forest, so scarce but so worth it. Much the same can be said for Olim Bauda, secluded and out of the way, down a long drive off the busy Via Prata, the path gently meanders continuously rising to finally reveal the family home through a grove of trees, or if you arrive in truffle season, more likely through a rolling mist. The estate is run by three siblings, Dino, Diana and Gianni who have devoted themselves to creating fresh, expressive Barbera d’Asti and clean, pure scintillating Gavi in the most delicate low interventionist way and without doubt they are worth all the trouble you might encounter to enjoy them.

Sustainable agricultural practices, following the rules for integrated farming which prohibit the use of herbicides. Rigorous green harvesting and bunch selection in the vineyards ensure that only perfectly ripe fruit is harvested.

Grape destemming and pressing take place on the evening following harvest. The must is poured into stainless steel vats, where it undergoes maceration along with skins at a temperature of 12°C. After skin separation, alcoholic fermentation begins and goes on for about 15 days at a temperature of 15-16°C; this temperature is needed to preserve the wine’s delicate flavour. Later on, a refinement on the lees will take place in stainless steel vats until May.

The elegant Cortese grapes are grown on the vineyards of San Martino farmhouse in the community of Gavi, and only the highest quality are selected to produce this stunning wine. A fine bouquet of good intensity and persistence with floral notes, Olim Bauda's Gavi di Gavi is fresh, soft, harmonious and has a delightful finish. Try with light cheeses, fish and chicken.
