Description

The Barbera d'Asti Bricco dell'Uccellone is produced by Braida and is born in vineyards located in the municipality of Rocchetta Tanaro (AT), in Piedmont. Braida is the winery of Giacomo Bologna, father of Raffaella and Giuseppe, who today run the family business, founded in 1961. The Braida winery is located in Rocchetta Tanaro, a small town in the province of Asti and located in Monferrato, one of the main wine-growing areas of Piedmont.

The Bricco dell'Uccellone grapes are harvested and selected only by hand. Fermentation takes place, with maceration in contact with the skins, in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for about 20 days. Subsequently, the wine is aged for 12 months in small oak barrels and for 12 months in the bottle, before being placed on the market.

In the glass the Bricco dell'Uccellone has a very intense ruby red color, with garnet reflections. The nose opens with a rich and complex bouquet, with hints of red fruit on menthol notes, then vanilla and licorice. On the palate it is soft and of remarkable structure, with a long and pleasantly aromatic finish.

This wine is perfect to accompany meat-based first and second courses, roasts and aged cheeses.

What is the Bricco dell'Uccellone grape variety?

The Bricco dell'Uccellone vine is Barbera grown on the hills of Rocchetta Tanaro. The Barbera d'Asti DOCG. is of the two Barbera DOCG of Piedmont, together with the Barbera del Monferrato DOCG.

The Bricco dell'Uccellone was born in 1982, when Giacomo Bologna wanted to experiment with Barbera using the barrique as a refinement wood. The success was enormous and a real revolution in the vinification of Barbera, which the Braida winery interprets in a multiple and convincing way.

The Barbera di Braida are a real journey that you can undertake to get to know one of the most important red grape varieties in Piedmont.

Why is the wine called Bricco dell'Uccellone?

Undoubtedly Giacomo Bologna's Bricco dell'Uccellone has a strange and characteristic name. The characteristic name of this wine derives from the story of a woman, nicknamed in the village the Bird for her big nose, similar to that of a bird, who lived on a hill, whose top in Piedmontese dialect is called "bric" or jug ".
