We say…..An award winning Italian red with plenty of character!  Big and bold like the bottle.

Tenuta Olim Bauda Barbera D’Asti is a soft and juicy red wine from Piedmonte with black cherry notes and hints of clove brought to life by a natural freshness. It really does taste stunning.

Tenuta Olim Bauda has been in the Bertolino family since the 1960’s and was the jewel in the crown of their negociant business. Tragically Sr. Bertolino died in 1985 leaving 3 very young children and no-one to run the business. Overnight, the thriving winery was closed down and for the next 15 years the fruit from their fantastic vineyards was sold to other producers. In 2000, the 3 siblings decided to try to revive the estate’s fortunes and have, since then, managed to re-establish Tenuta Olim Bauda as one of Piedmonte’s top producers. A little help from the famous consultant Beppe Caviola and the acquisition of a prime site in the Gavi di Gavi DOC, means they now produce a range of Gavi’s and Barbera d’Asti’s which have won huge acclaim including 3 Bichieri from the Gambero Rosso for the last 3 vintages of the top Barbera ‘Nizza’ and 92 points from Parker.  

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

Immediately after harvest, the grapes are pressed and then poured into stainless steel vats.  Maceration along with alcoholic fermentation lasts for 12 days – the fermentation temperature never exceeds 30 degrees Celsius.  During July the wine is bottled.

No oak treatment is used in the production of Barbera d’Asti.  The wine is typified by a deep and bright ruby red colour, has rich berry aromas and is full-bodied.  A Jeroboam of Barbera d’Asti, equivalent to 4 standard sized wine bottles, is perfect with Italian food but also makes very easy drinking without.  A fine Italian Stallion!

All our magnums and jeroboams come securely packaged in a beautiful presentation tube and are supplied with a gift tag. The even bigger bottles are packaged in sturdy wooden boxes and are also supplied with a gift tag.
