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. In line with the first and top famous reserve wine, the Bricco dell’Uccellone, also this label has a story behind it. It seems it was dedicted to a woman of traditional and religious customs, who lived near the Barbera vines in Rocchetta Tanaro: the dedication was not direct, however, but it followed certain grievances coming from Rome, delivered to Giacomo Bologna because of the embarrassment that Bricco dell’Uccellone generated to some Vatican high prelates particularly passionated about this wine due to the name. Hence the funny reaction, in the best Braida style: a change in cellar practices to differentiate this reserve wine and the identification of new name with a meaning quite distant from the previous.

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 se alevel 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 crisp red and purple fruits berries to sweet spices and to roasted and woody notes. It might recall other Piedmontese wines (and not only) for a strong, self-confident,serious and energic 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.
