TENUTA OLIM BAUDA

‘Era’ Barbera D'Asti

“Northern Italy is a fantastic area for showstopping red wines, but it’s the bolder styles, like Amarone, that often grab the headlines. Barbera is slightly lesser-known but no less worthy of your attention. For a more vibrant, youthful take on Italian reds, Barbera is not to be missed.

Wine Information

About the wine

Tenuta Olim Bauda forgoes the use of oak entirely in the making of this wine. The result? A fresh, fruit-forward style of Barbera with plenty of delicious unfiltered character.

 

About the producer

The estate was run by the Bertolino family from the 1960s until 1985 when Sr. Bertolino tragically died. The thriving winery had no option but to close down. Then, in 2000, the three children he had left behind – Dino, Diana and Gianni – embarked on reviving the estate. Today, Tenuta Olim Bauda is one of Piemonte’s most renowned producers.

 

About the region

Piedmont is a historic winemaking region, and it’s here, high up in the picturesque hills of Olim Bauda’s vineyards, that grapes are able to ripen slowly and luxuriously in the warm sun.
