very nice red wine from the fresh barbera grape
eighteen months oak aging
complex, round and smooth
excellent meal wine


Beautiful Barbera d'asti

Full red color and spicy spicy scent, with some cedar, oak and fresh red fruit. The full, juicy taste lingers for a long time, with fresh acidity and light tannins.
The Piedmont wine region has two completely different grapes that (can) produce great wines. The spicy and tannic nebbiolo grape dominates in Barolo while the fresh elegant barbera yields beautiful results in Alba and Asti.
From the latter place comes the particularly beautiful red wine of Tenuta Olim Bauda. The spicy fresh barbera grape, in combination with 18 months of oak aging, obtains a complex round and smooth taste.
The grapes for the vigorous Le Rocchette are harvested by hand only in the second half of October. Dino Bertolino selects old vines, which give grapes with more concentration and ripeness. This selection is important for the winemaking process, as Le Rocchette matures for about eighteen months in large barrels of 2,500 liters, made of French oak.

A light Barbera, for example from a younger vineyard, would not be able to handle this and soon have an overdose of oak influence. For this special and prize-winning Le Rocchette, it actually works out very positively. The taste and smell become more complex due to the slow and even maturation in the large barrels and the wine retains the unique taste qualities of optimally ripe barbera grapes.

The brothers Dino and Gianni make with Le Rocchette one of the most beautiful Barberas in Piedmont. Drink the wine like the Italians at the table with a matching dish, or simply with cheese or sausage and bread.

Tenuta Olim Bauda - Piemonte


Viticulture is hard work to produce a product that seems to have come about effortlessly. 'Making wine is practical and poetic at the same time', they say at Tenuta Olim Bauda in Piemonte. It requires a lot of knowledge, effort, dedication and patience. Although the brothers Dino and Gianni and their sister Diana Bertolino grew up with it - the domain has been in the family for generations - making good wine is never self-evident.

Olim Bauda is located in the northeast of Italy, in the province of Asti and within that in the Monferrato region. Dino, Gianni and Diana make a range of wines from six vineyards here, including famous names such as Barbera d'Asti and Moscato d'Asti. They also grow the lesser-known grape Grignolino, an old - and difficult - Piedmontese variety.

The contrast between poetry and hard work is reflected in the cellars. On the one hand a beautiful historic barrel cellar where the wines rest and mature, on the other hand a modern space with shiny tanks where fermentation takes place under strictly controlled conditions. It produces wines that carry the typical characteristics of Italian grapes, polished by the advantages of modern technology. In other words: spicy, characterful yet supple wine, which you can easily drink another glass of.
