Tenuta Olim Bauda are Barbera specialists. Unlike others in Piedmont, their best sites are planted with this workhorse grape instead of the revered Nebbiolo. And this is an excellent example of what Barbera is capable of when planted in top, warm sites and cropped at low yields. Full, heady and modern, the ripe fruit expertly balances the grape’s naturally high acidity. Rich, dark fruits intermingle nicely with fennel, cacao and violets.
