Description

Barbera is Giacomo Bologna and Giacomo Bologna is Barbera: he owes the fortune of the great winemaking company he created to this grape, brought to its maximum expression by the interpretation as a reserve and not as a young and ready-to-go wine. Same as the two Briccoes, the Ai Suma Riserva has a history behind it, made up of a desire that arose in 1989, so few years after the release of the Briccoes, to experiment a late harvest of Barbera coming from the Rocchetta Tanaro vineyards. The decision was strongly criticized and opposed but it was not the first time for Giacomo Bologna to bring forward revolutionary ideas without stopping at the first criticism or difficulty. The idea then became action, was translated into wine and blessed with the words “Ai Suma” (here we are), producing only in those years of exceptional quality and really worth. Medium-textured soils with sand and clay able to deliver wines with an intense aromatic and gustatory spectrum: this is the terroir of Rocchetta Tanaro close to Asti, where Braida’s vineyards are located at 160 meters above sea level altitude facing South/South-West. It was Giacomo Bologna’s intuition the use of barriques to refine the Barbera, a first-time revolutionary experiment that completely changed this wine, enhancing its ageing potential.

Of course, this is still a Barbera and it must be appreciated as such: a convivial, generous, affable and reliable wine which knows how to express itself in a broad and complex fashion for the most demanding taster, offering a wide spectrum of aromas ranging from berries to sweet and bitter spices and to cocoa. It might recall other Piedmontese wines (and not only) for a tenacious, proud and winning behavior, but we find it hard not to think that, underneath it, there is still that“naughty”Barbera where all started. 2017 was not an easy year with very high temperatures in the summer following an unstable spring, with few frosts towards the end of April. Low yields but very high quality, the 2017 vintage is ready for to be collected, especially in large formats like Magnum.
