This is really a Barbaresco in disguise. 

Fruit comes from one of the appellation’s best crus in Starderi and the wine ferments for over a month on skins. Like all great producers in the Langhe, the same care and attention to detail goes into this ‘lesser’ bottling, producing an elegant wine that defies its humble designation.

Olek Bondonio is quite at home on the steep slopes that surround his Barbaresco cantina, having been a champion snowboarder in his youth. It’s an historic family estate of 200+ years close to the Tre Stelle frazione of Barbaresco with an emphasis on Nebbiolo in the cru sites of Straderi, Roncaglie, & Roncaglietta.

Olek favours the small size of estate as it allows him to single-handedly work the vines & make the wines. Viticulture is essentially organic while the approach in the tiny cantina is traditional, fermenting in large cement tanks followed by ageing in Slavonian Gamba & Stockinger (Austrian) Botte Grande; all in a scrupulously clean environment.
