BRAIDA MONTE BRUNA BARBERA D'ASTI 2015

Wine Region: Italy, Piedmont

Grape: Brachetto

Tasting Notes

Intense ruby red with purple hues. Notes of red berries, mint and vanilla. The bouquet is rich, aromatic and complex with a remarkable intensity and multilayered concentration. The wine is generous, voluptuous and full-bodied with a multidimensional structure, perfectly balanced between the grape characteristics and high quality oak, with a persistent long finish.

Ratings

Wine Spectator 93 pts - A dense and brooding red, this displays rich black cherry, blackberry, vanilla and chocolate aromas and flavors. Not as fluid as some of its peers, but complex, solid and long. Drink now through 2024.

James Suckling 93 pts - Extremely pretty bouquet here of brambleberry bush, chocolate, mocha-scented oak and cocoa. Full body, refreshing acidity, some really nice structure and a chewy finish.

About the Winery

It all began with the nickname "Braida", which was acquired by the great-grandfather Giuseppe Bologna who was a champion in playing "pallone elastico" on town and church squares, a typical sport of the Piedmont region. Giacomo Bologna inherited both vineyards and nickname from his father, but above all an unconditional love for his land and wine.Since 1961 until today Braida has been the amplified and faithful image of the philosophy of Giacomo and Anna, their prospect of life, earth, wine and friendship.
