Tenuta Olim Bauda, Nizza Riserva 2017
The wine is only produced in really excellent years. Deep purple. The nose is rich and complex perfumed with red berry fruits that are peculiar to this grape variety. The palate is firm and full but balanced, and the finish is persistent and enticing.
Grapes from the Nizza vineyard are selected by hand between the first and second weeks of October. That same evening they are pressed and go into stainless steel vats to undergo temperature controlled fermentation. After the first fermentation is completed, juice is poured into French oak barrels (Botti 25HL) and left there for refinement for 30 months.
Piedmont is almost as famous for truffles as it is wine, those elusive delectable delights that need to be rooted out from the depths of the forest, so scarce but so worth it. Much the same can be said for..... Olim Bauda, secluded and out of the way, down a long drive off the busy Via Prata, the path gently meanders continuously rising to finally reveal the family home through a grove of trees, or if you arrive in truffle season, more likely through a rolling mist. The estate is run by three siblings, Dino, Diana and Gianni who have devoted themselves to creating fresh, expressive Barbera d’Asti and clean, pure scintillating Gavi in the most delicate low interventionist way and without doubt they are worth all the trouble you might encounter to enjoy them.
