Buy Braida Barbera d'Asti Bricco Dell'Uccellone
Quite intense ruby red with garnet highlights. The bouquet is rich, complex, with noteworthy concentration and range. This is particularly evident in the hints of red berries and small fruits; in the background there are mint, vanilla and liquorice spices. The taste is dry, generous, full-bodied and of significant structure, a perfect amalgamation of characteristics of the vine and the contribution of the wood, making a mixture of great softness and grand class, with a particularly long aromatic finish.

Wine maker notes
The vineyard takes its name from the old woman who lived in the house adjacent to the vineyard. The lady was always dressed in black and there fore given the nickname “l’uselun” (big bird).

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. Raffaella and Giuseppe Bologna, both oenologists, are the third “Braida” generation and are united by the initial dream to elevate the Barbera grape into a noble status which for some would seem to be reserved only for international varieties.
