Braida – Bricco dell’Uccellone Barbera d’Asti

Piemonte / Piedmont


Out of stock

Giacomo Bologna is considered to be the pioneer who not only improved the overall quality of wine made in Italy from the Barbera grape varietal, but also to have the varietal’s name on the world stage. Reducing yields and employing French Barrique barrels to age the wine, imparted flavour and structure and thus rendered the wine age-worthy, a characteristic that had never previously been ascribed to Barbera. First released in 1982 this wine immediately became a leader on the national and international wine scene.
The Bricco dell’Uccellone grapes grow in a 6 ha single vineyard on a southern steep slope in the ‘frazione’(township) of “Bricco”, just up the hill from Rocchetta Tanaro, Asti, Northern Italy.
This wine is a perfumed and fruit-driven wine. Showing notes of dark berries, sour cherries, spices and smokiness. The bouquet is aromatic and complex with a remarkable intensity and multilayered concentration. The palate is voluptuous and full-bodied and its rich fruit is lifted by the crisp acidity. The multidimensional structure is in perfect balance with the wine’s juicy fruit and quality oaking.
