2022 Olek Bondonio Vino Rosso La Mosca Ubriaca14877
WINEMAKER: Olek Bondonio
REGION: Piemonte, IT
100% barbera from a small vineyard that Olek recently acquired in Castagnole delle Lanze (Barbera d'Asti aerea). The soil here is very rich in limestone and chalk. Maceration with minimal pumps over, in stainless steel tank, with the purpose of delivering a sharp, crunchy and minerally driven barbera, opposed to the more opulent style of his barbera d'Alba. Olek decided to go out as vino rosso instead of barbera d'Asti for less confusion, considering is already got a lable of Barbera d'Asti.
Polish champion snowboarder Olek Bondonio has quietly established a cult following from his old farmhouse in Barbaresco. He farms three and a half hectares amongst the region's top crus, utilising indigenous yeast fermentation and minimal intervention.
