Tenuta Olim Bauda Barbera D'Asti Le Rocchette
Grape variety: Barbera 100%
Vineyard: "Le Rocchette". Yield per hectare less than 50-60 quintals (it depends on the vintage).
Tasting notes: garnet red with purple hues. On the nose it shows complex, subtle, deep aromas with well balanced notes of ripened fruit, plum, cocoa and spice. To the palate is soft and harmonious, well structured and properly alcoholic with sweet and fine-grained tannins that give the wine proper fullness. It has a persistent and enticing close.
Vinification: Harvest in Bauda vineyard takes place in the first week of October and grape selection is completely made by hand. Immediately after having been harvested, the evening grape is pressed in the Estate cellar and then poured into stainless steel vats. Maceration along with alcoholic fermentation lasts 12 days. Subsequently, wine is placed into 25-HL Frech oak barrels (Allier) where it is left to age for 18 months. After a further 12-month bottle refinement, wine is ready to be released to the market.
Wine release: it begins 24 months later after the millesime vintage.
