Description Build A Case!
One of the greatest red wines I have ever tasted from anywhere was the 1998 rendition of this wine. The wine was originally brought to the US by the great Domenic Nocerino who brought some of Italy's greatest wines to our tables. The likes of Valdicava, Gaja, Giacossa and Flaccianello. The name of the house is Braida from the family of Bologna. Giacomo Bologna started this great winery which is now run by son and daughter. Daughter Raffaella has done tasting for us before and has one of the greatest personalities to do customer tastings, she's the best. Now where most great wineries from Piedmont focus on Nebbiolo, Braida is recognized as making the finest Barbera in the world.

Parker's WA recently commented: "Braida di Giacomo Bologna is a pioneering estate, especially in terms of world class Barbera. This producer almost single handedly invented the concept of Barbera d'Asti and it continues to offer compelling evidence, vintage after vintage, of the variety's unquestionable excellence."

Their wines reach huge levels of richness and concentration matched with superb intensity, complexity and depth. Have this wine with some Osso Bucco and risotto and it will blow your mind. We have been able to secure the 2015 vintage which in Europe is going down as one of the greatest vintages we have seen. Italy and Piedmont is spectacular in 2015.

The 2015 Braida Bricco dell'Uccellone is an incredible wine reminding me of the 1998 I loved and remembered from so many years ago. This is one of the greatest Italian red wine experiences to be had. Giacomo was inspired to make this wine after a trip to California in the 1970's, he loved the wines and understood the importance of using new French oak. He called his wife saying, "We've done everything wrong, these are a bit of a piece of work ahead of us." The first vintage of the Braida Bricco was 1982 and the wine has gone on to become the finest expression of Barbera on the planet. This single vineyard wine from true specialists in this great vintage and being one of Italy's most celebrated wines is a must! I will be adding a case to my cellar.
