Braida – Barbera d’Asti Bricco dell’Uccellone – 2019
Bricco dell’Uccellone, is the iconic wine of the Braida winery, in 1982 Giacomo Bologna decided to experiment with the barbera-barrique combination, grapes from vineyards at 160 meters above sea level, on soils rich in clay and limestone that give the wines structure and aromaticity.
A bottle with incredible aging potential, body, softness and lots of complexity. A wine that gets everyone to agree!

We are in Rocchetta Tanaro a very small town in the Asti area, here begins the story of the Braida winery linked to the Bologna family,which today has reached the third generation. A beautiful story, made of passion, tradition,identity and territory. Giacomo Bologna believed in it from the beginning in the potential of Barbera, it can be said that it was he, with Bricco dell’Uccellone and other wines that have made the history of Italian oenology, who overturned what were the most common beliefs about this vine. The work in the vineyards is conducted in the most natural way possible, in the cellar he inserts the use of barriques and with this combination of innovation and traditionality he always gives us wines of great impact, a happy combination of elements that develop projects that respect the environment, tradition, and human value.
