Not what you might expect from Piedmont’s ‘work horse’ grape. That’s because Olim Bauda specializes in Barbera, planting it in their best vineyards which are situated in one of Asti’s warmest areas. This is big, concentrated and modern, with loads of ripe, dark fruits alongside clove, anise and floral notes. It has more tannic grip than most in the category and Olim Bauda always does a terrific job of balancing the grape’s high natural acidity with impressive depth and weight. A delicious example of what Barbera is capable of when in the right hands.
