Braida Bricco Dell’Uccellone Barbera D’Asti 2017


At sight it has a very intense ruby red color with garnet reflections. The perfume is rich, complex, of notable concentration and thickness, and highlights hints of red fruit and small fruits, with a background of mental spices, vanilla and licorice. In the mouth it gives a generous flavor, full-bodied and remarkable structure, perfect amalgam of the characteristics of the grape variety and the contribution of wood, in a combination of great softness and class.

Winery Profile:
Braida has raised the status of Barbera from everyday local wine to a complex, stylish wine which can be just as unique as a Barolo or Brunello. 1961 was the date of the first harvest of the lively Barbera del Monferrato, “La Monella”, which Giacomo Bologna decided to bottle. In 1969, Giacomo presented his wine at the Douja d’Or National Wine Competition in Asti, winning the gold medal. The single-vineyard 1982 Bricco dell’ Uccellone set the standard for the making of a great Barbera.
