Olim Bauda Le Rocchette, Barbera d'Asti Superiore, DOCG
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.
Working organically in the vineyards since 2019 with 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. Grapes are pressed in the Estate cellar and then poured into stainless steel vats. Maceration lasts 12 days. The wine is then placed into 25-HL French oak barrels (Allier) where it is left to age for 18 months.
Garnet red with purple hues. On the nose, it shows complex, subtle, deep aromas with well-balanced notes of ripened fruit, plum, cocoa and spice. On the palate, it is soft and harmonious, well structured and properly alcoholic with sweet and fine-grained tannins that give the wine proper fullness. It has a persistent and enticing close. Made for Roast Beef, fillet steak and medium-aged cheeses.
