TCD Opinion
Good year with a very good September; Braida vineyards were something of a falcon from the flames! Wonderful Barbera, a hardy little grape!

Bright ruby red colour with a striking nose of ripe cherries and red berries. This wine has a full bodied and smooth textured taste with a long finish, the final notes...

TasteThe pinot gives a delicate note of blackberry, and a warm, pleasing mouth-feel, from the finish of plum, pepper and cinnamon. A complex and elegant wine.
ColourIntense, brilliant ruby red.
TCD Opinion
An adventurous wine from Braida but an interesting mix that we can recommend as a brilliant accompaniment to food.

A bright ruby red with spices dominating the nose. The finish is fresh with hints of cinnamon, vanilla and berries. Charming wine, supple and drinking well today. (SN - 10/07)

TCD Opinion
This is quality fizz with a berry taste. If the Piedmont had a party, this wine would be the DJ. Great fun.

If you're looking for a top quality fizzy red to liven up a tasting or a tapas then this is just the ticket. Flavourful and delicious with food.

87 Points - fizzy reds can't be scored in the same way as still reds however, this wine receives its score because it fulfills its purpose. It is great quality fizz that will slide down wonderfully at parties.

Grape100% Barbera

TasteThere is plenty of fruit, along with great length on the palate and notable balance. In the background there are mint, vanilla and liquorice spices and the wine has a superb clean and long finish.
ColourQuite intense ruby red with garnet highlights.
TCD Opinion
The 2005 is a better wine although this wine has slightly different charms. The 2004 is a more subtle wine, offering more minerals to the nose and is not as full bodied as the 2004 vintages.

A rich, medium bodied and complex wine. The nose has a sensation of spices, chocolate and coffee as well as dark fuirts. The flavour is concentrated and strong but not...

In many was the name Giacomo Bologna is synonymous with Barbera d’Asti. Bologna was among the first, if not the first, producer to believe that Barbera was capable of producing world-class wines by working with low yields and barrique-aging. With his Bricco dell’Uccellone Bologna single-handedly re-invented the image of Barbera from a varietal that had been seen as giving simple, rustic wines with untamed acidity to one capable of producing modern wines of notable concentration and elegance. Even though Bologna passed away at a young age in 1990 he left an indelible stamp on the world of Piedmontese enology.

Today the estate is run by Giacomo’s children, Raffaela and Giuseppe, who continue the work of their father. The estate produces a wide range of Barberas, but the most famous are the three selections Bricco dell’Uccellone, Bricco della Bigotta, and Ai Suma. Bricco dell’Uccellone is the estate’s flagship Barbera. It is a rich, concentrated wine made from low yields and aged 12 months in barrique. Bricco della Bigotta is a more classic wine in some ways. Average yields are a bit higher and it spends a few additional months in oak.

In top vintages Ai Suma is produced from late harvested super-ripe grapes. It is the richest and most opulent of the wines. In recent years the estate has introduced a new cask-aged Barbera, Montebruna, intended for nearer-term consumption.

Lastly, there is also a simple Barbera called La Monella, made in a traditional frizzante style.
